Ostara
(Spring Equinox)


The whispering of the wind---permeates the long night,
Darkness our cool cover---as we await the Lady's light.

All time is suspended---as closer and closer She nears,
Coming once more, as before---to thus assuage all fears.

Awesome Ostara arrives! Great Goddess of Rebirth,
Regal and radiant She dawns---gazing o'er the Earth.

A torch to the beacon bonfire---as a symbol of our love,
Loud is the laughter---resounding to heaven above.

Joyfully we jump---tossing Ostara's eggs on high,
Dancing with awed delight---beneath Her beautiful sky.

Earth offers to Ostara---grasses, grains, and flowers,
Gifts of harmony and health---herbs of healing powers.

Our own offerings---are ay of love and loyalty,
To the Star-crowned Queen---dressed in Dawn's robe of royalty.

Hail to our Lovely Lady---She Who Ever Shall Be!
Within our Ur-Self's center---within the Well and Tree!

Đ Rhonda Turner
