The Goddess Hecate
by John Mitchell
Age Group: Adult
There is a shadow in the sky,
there is a specter blotting out the stars.
The torch of the Sun is hidden
by the jealous Earth
who tells the Moon,
"I love you in shadow
I love your pocked and dusty face."
There is a death waiting for us all
there will come a time when we are only shadow -
when we are nothing more than a wavering specter.
Will you dance at the crossroads?
Will your shadow cross her feet?
Will you smile into her dusty face?
There, the torch held high.
There, dark mother leads the way.
Follow the braying of hounds,
feel the breeze of beating wings.
She has shown you the path;
Will you follow?
I say, Hecate! Beloved Mother,
dark as the shadow moon!
Hecate, face powdered with the dust of crossroads!
Hecate, old mother,
torch bearer, keeper of keys!
Hecate, my love I give!
Hecate, my devotion I give!
Hecate, my offerings I give!
Light my way in the dark.
