Oh Goddess I am rooted;
now can my full voice ring true.
Awaken, Life in my body, rise up Life in my mind,
dance Life in my Spirit and
Join the star chant.
Whatever words my lips shape, Goddess is heard.
Earth formed me and all I form holds Her.
Sacred water, within — without
Breath — sacred too
There is nothing I share with all life that is outside the Circle.
In this lies the hope.
In the truth of our family lies our confidence.
This is our strong city, our deepest well, our mountain.
Then all is well.
Countries and peoples alive with the stars.
from Earth Psalms, by the late Angela Magara
