I wrote this a few years ago, inspired by a gray day and resting my feet in a creek. I was lucky enough to have brought paper and pen, and I’m pretty sure the little pixies of the woods helped out! I hope you enjoy this poem as much as I had fun writing it! Happy Friday!
If you wish to put the poem on your website, that’s just fine! Just please link it back to here. Thanks so much!
THE GODDESS’S LULLABY
Within me dwells the earth and sky
The knowing winds and mountains high.
Behind my eyes are the stars and moon
My love for all glows back at you.
The veins flow with the rivers and lakes
My hair the pattern tangled branches make.
The heart it makes the ocean tides
and causes mountains to collide.
Within me dwells the dusky sky
The restless winds your lullaby
And gentle ponds your pillow will be
My arms the dark soil that covers thee.
And here and there a star will fall
to paint a picture on your wall
And tell you stories of long ago
When the world was young and
the universe old.
