Our great rite began
Fertility ritual
Beneath hemlocks bough

Dual female vigor
Ecstasy entwined coven
Scents of myrrh rising

Parabolic act
White birch athame thrust to
A vacant chalice

Lips tasted of mint
As wine filled her rose quart cup
Nightshade graced her skin

Sowing season sings
With passion after sunset
Symbolic seeds grew

A mothers forest
Bare witness to a full moon
Rite on earth alters
