Earthwizard's Realms of Faërie

		Star of the Witches
	
	The star of stars, five pointed, encircled by light:
	at the top, the goddess points the way,
	the endless knot of eternal life, unfolding;
	the hidden path follows us into the sun,
	the folded way into the moon: all, measuring
	the enduring legacy of night: the horned moon, 
	goddess and god; the dreamtime 
	songlines we walk down into the abyss,
	toward the progress of our lives, the white lotus:
	petal by petal, descending through birth, 
	initiation, consummation, repose, and death
	(which, all known, is but the gateway to rebirth, 
	replenishing); following the spiral arm 
	of the Milky Way, and the slow revolving bear,
	frogs on the wattle paddy pond, pray;
	the red, gaunt crane, striking the day:
	the lunging of her beak into our life finds us
	once again born into the world 
	of endless strife and peace; the magick, told; 
	the story, long; the destiny, shorn, the gift, beheld:
	the quickened light of the freighted mind, 
	the second sight: the green man and his wood wife, 
	holding all; the measure and the bond 
	of the circuit run: the primrose petaled 
	pentagram in our palm, bringing us back again 
	to the only always ever life we are and be:
	the blessing of the tree and the seasons of the year
	show us the way of her love who is our compeer.
