Part 2: War Cries

Songs of Grief


lacey things


(written to music)

Earth Mother, find my fingers,
Draw me to your fading heartbeat,
Hold up my chilling spirit,
Guide me up towards the light.

I can feel my life-force waning
As your own burns out around us.
Take my young cool hand upon you,
We will rise up to the light. 


Mother Earth, I am your daughter.
In my belly lie your children.
Cry out their voices through me,
Sing children’s voices through me,
I will call to all their song,
We must call to sky their Song!


I am Earth Mother’s daughter,
Her heart-break cry cracks from my body :

 ‘O Godde, save my Children
To hear the music of the Dawn.’
