		The Witching Ways
 
	I stand here in amazement of this bright earth
	knowing that no religion has the corner on truth:
	that the earth is beyond all decisions I may calculate;
	it is: and in this it begins to speak its own truth.
	 
	The pagan earth is but a dream of yours
	my friend, the myths of druid magick
	a thing of the past: the light within my eyes
	holds troth to the living present of this light;
	 
	Mother earth is but a symbol for something richer
	than evil spells can deliver; for our magick is alive;
	the poet once said: "all gods reside within 
	the human breast." No secrets left: we stand revealed;
	 
	Maybe you would wear black robes,
	skyclad I was born to go; but blood
	is not to my taste, and for phallus' I have 
	no worship, but incantations only for my goddess;
	 
	As for the spirit dragons of the faeries:
	beware the silliness we sing, for it portends
	a power not thought of in your hollow God's creeds:
	the earth is magickal, divine; and will not suffer
	 
	easily the dark forces of a dark god
	who would raise himself above all other gods:
	the god you worship bled upon a cross,
	my goddess lives within my deepest light:
	 
	to her my troth be true, for she
	above all gods and men is true:
	her life the life of this bright universe;
	this dream of earth her only paradise;
	 
	For round the Great Wheel we spin:
	our fires in slow growth, flame brightly;
	for we know the wisdom of the ages:
	we are the Children of the Goddess.
