Spinning circles
bending rhyme
stretching
from the mark in time
when darkness reaches balance point
with light;

when Rabbit pads her nest again,
ever sacred has this Sabbat been
clothed in green of gossamer
and bright;

anoint with dragon's blood in offering,
violet, lemon balm and lavender,
tansy, nutmeg, rose and orange rind,
strewn herbs for Faerie welcoming;

mark eggs freely coloring
in shadow symbols' strengthening
chosen to unwind our need
braided in a labyrinthine of souls;

chase the children ‘round in rings
seeking treats the season brings,
quick fertile Earth's awakenings,
Freyja laughs as flowered petals soft unfold;

let fortune bring forth offerings,
Eostre's gifts of living Spring,
welcome yielding without coveting,
none tainted by hunger's taste of greed.

Always a pleasure to read and reread your words. Happy Easter. M
