                         ======RHYMING CHARGE OF THE GODDESS======

          I am the harmonious tune of the songbird
          And the laughter of a gleeful child.
          I am the bubbling sound of the running brook
          And the scent of the flowers wild.

          I am the floating leaf upon the breeze
          And the dancing fire in the forest glade.
          I am the sweet smell of rains upon the soil.
          And the rapture of passion when love is made.

          I am the germination of seed in the Spring
          And the ripening of wheat in the Sun.
          I am the peaceful depth of the twilight
          That soothes the soul when day is done.

          I am found in the twinkling of an aged eye...
          And found in the birth of a newborn pup...
          Yes...Birth and Growth and Death, am I
          I am the gracious Earth, on whom you sup.

          I am your sister, your mother, the wise one.
          I wrap you gently in the warmth of my love.
          That which your seek you shall find within:
          Not without...not below...not above!

          Remember always, my children, be reverent.
          Be gentle, loving and kind to each other
          And hold sacred the Earth and its creatures:
          For I am the Lady:  Creatrix and Mother!
