	The Grael Keeper
	
	She hands the hand of light to me:
	I hold the vein and tap it free,
	the liquid day reveals the play,
	the scattered myths of yesterday:
	and now the dream into her goes,
	the power, the goal, to know her self;
	the simple truths we gather here
	are all the measure of our years;
	and if you hold the vein real tight
	you'll feel the blood of gods come in:
	the horned one, curled one,
	sea bold, too; the quick eyed,
	wood eyed, deft one move:
	the goat-god, green man,
	toady on the pod,
	the crane of nine lives,
	the Mother of our nights:
	the queen of rats,
	the winter match,
	the sister of the echoing moon;
	and lift your blood a little higher
	and you will find the green vine crier:
	the laughter spinning ginny there
	who measures dreams in tears;
	yet, as all these gods and goddesses
	pass into your blood
	remember this:
	you are the power
	they are feeding on,
	the scarlet treasure of their dream:
	for they exist only by our feeding them;
	so know the gods within your blood,
	the running tiger, simurgh, dragon brood,
	the eagle, owl, and wolf man, too;
	for all the elementals move
	within your bright green veins
	and the music of the spheres
	regains its balance in your eyes...
