Part 2: War Cries
Songs of Grief
(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.’
