Listening to the fiddlers
hidden by the misty shadows of the Night,
Curious eyes shine out of the darkness
as this luminescent Lady slips into sight.

"Maiden Huntress,
I course the skies
with my radiant hounds,
bow of silver and ivory prepared.
Protector of women, deliverer of children,
woe to those who cross me
for I will make them regret
what they so unwisely dared!

Reflective Mother,
I stir your emotions,
brew prophecies, inspire madness,
birth shapeshifters, nightmares and dreams.
Mistress of Magic,
gaze into my scrying mirror
inhaling ancient mysteries
as my sacred cauldron steams.

Warrior Queen
moving to my own rhythm.
I create myself anew and don my horned crown,
resplendent on my wintry throne.
Dispensing riddles, wisdom, and justice
My karmic lesson bring a subtle clarity.
Some invoke me as the compassionate mother,
Others call me forth as the fateful crone.

Waxing philosophical,
I awaken your instincts,
evoke ancestral rites,
inspire creativity and romance.
Dwindling back into myself,
I rein in the restless tides.
Guiding you with compassionate strength
through every transformation,
as I continue my ancient dance."

 

 

Each of these singing poems is inspired by a Teacher found in Nature; a star, stone, plant, animal etc that holds lessons of Wisdom for those willing to listen. This particular poem is brand new, and only the poem is written. But, I thought everyone here would enjoy being the first to guess this mystical Singer that has inspired our people for centuries. Can you guess who is singing?

Congrats on being first!  Smiley I knew this one would be quickly guessed at the Cauldron. I expect the Sun will be equally recognizable, whenever I get around to writing that one lol So many wonderful things one can say about either too!

The alternate title for this one is With Slippers Worn From Dancing. Any preferances?

Thank you so much! There is no greater compliment than to hear that your work reached out and touched another  Grin
