	Bastet: Mother of all Cats

	Nine lives the queen of cats bestows
	on those who in fierce desire serve her feline ways:
	she who devours the enemies of Time, the dark Lord of Destiny;
	maiden queen of the royal house of the two lands;
	desert wise she rises to meet the new dawn sun,
	grace and elegance, her familiars, leaping beside her - 
	she dances before the golden sun, her lover, 
	guiding the ever-turning wheel of life in never-ending
	ritual gestures of love and strife.
	Protectress of Earth and all her creatures,
	temple keeper of the famed City of Bubastis,
	she holds forth the symbols of her power -
	the cow, the mirror, and the ritual sistrum:
	round which her dark companion, leopard wise
	in rhythmic unison paces back and forth
	in defense of all who would harm this Leopard Queen of Ægypt.
