A Wiccan Choice
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
But sacrifices such as this must be,
Once we pass the threshold back into time:
To sacrifice wildflowers for the tree,
Or the future tree for the "dandelions".
The dandelion does have its charms as well,
Before the new concerns coming with years
Destroy the beauty of the childhood spells,
Among the flowers which the bees revere.
It is true as well, that learning to wait
Is the lesson, alas, Orpheus missed,
Which might have spared Eurydice her fate
And kept his songs ones of marital bliss.
To wait or not to wait: our choice of charms
Depends on what we will and what least harms.
Author's Notes: This deals with the other side of the coin from that in my poem, On Purpose.
