Contemplation One.

O true Mother,
O true circle that surrounds,
O true love that bore,
O spirit of nourishment,

O only door
into the realms of the earth and nature,
(mountain, river, and sea)

O Midwife of life and all its richness,
O Sewer of the stitched tapestry,

O Servant of the family way,
O Observer of the baby’s play,
O Baker of the leavened loaf,
O Helper of the cooking fire,
O Wine of eventide is poured,
Walk last behind the child!
