Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

At the crossroads she divines the secret life of our times...

	Hecate: Queen of Witches

	In the quiet of the night we wait
	for her white light: aura of magic
	    and mystery, breaking
	    over time's dark sea,
	awakening us once again
	to her ancient wisdom and empowerment;
	the quickening strangeness, her gift of love.
	Even now, we intone the sacred sounds 
	her names invoke letting them enfold 
	      us like a promise of birth and re-birth:
	Hecate Selene, queen of witches,
	      thrice blessed guardian of crossroads; 
	Artemis, huntress and earth wanderer,
	      most lovely one, seed giver;
	Persephone, Lady of enchantments and dark desires,
	      dancer who brings forth the sun,
	      revealer of dreams and mysteries: 
	the triune goddess: virgin, mother, and crone; 
	      moon-bender, turning always 
	      below night's stark boundaries,
	guiding us under the black loaming
	      of the underworld, where ancestral 
	      haunts beckon us toward the deep 
	memory of kith and kin and a weltering moon.
