Demeter


Demeter, mother of the earth,
the caring goddess of all living things,
the chief protector of all cultivation,
welfare and expansion of all nature,
you are piety itself, but also sorrow,
searching for a ravished child forever
and indulging in your sorrow wetting earth with tears
to make it grow the more and give good harvests,
no life service being more indulging
than to cry for sorrow in sincerest love.

But you are also guardian and protector of all harvests,
making wheat grow, starving off starvation,
as you are the farmer's goddess above all,
perhaps the most important, vital and constructive,
as no humankind can live and prosper without food,
of which you are the universal and unique provider.

So desist not, motherhood, to care for us,
and we shall always turn to you
in maximized and our sincerest piety
and gratitude for the existence of our freedom
maintained and supported only by your Nature.
