|Sweet-faced youth |
With bare feet and arms abreast
The sun shines upon you.
Glorious maiden of hidden origins,
We wonder at your knowledge
As we recognize your truth.
You are purity and wisdom,
Sexuality and innocence,
Misty dawn and
All in one.
Your endless enthusiasm
Gives rise to eternal possibilities.
May your sacred play
Open the way for all of humanity.
Great goddess Eostre,
Goddess of spring and dawn,
Goddess of childhood and innocence,
Goddess of the east and rebirth,
You are the passageway,
Clear and free,
To our desires and dreams.
May we always remember.
May we never forget.
