                          ======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!
