with our Goddess one night before due;
we spoke to Her
with wine in hand,
wind in our hair.
Water, my offering;
when you looked at me
with your sweet brown eyes, I poured
when the wind began its
whisper through the trees.
We didn't see anyone
watching through the
wet green leaves surrounding us, but still,
we were left to
wonder what would be.
Wearing a red band 'round my
wrist, I reemerged into the "civilized"
world in which people live, and I
was saddened, because the crimson band I
wore no longer could be
We still—you and I, my
wondrous dear—made love as
winking stars shone overhead outside.
Author's Notes: This is my first pagan festival poem.
The red band is a string I wore around my left wrist to represent the Virgin Huntress's part in the celebration, blood. Alas, as is implied, I am no virgin. So rather than pure white, I wore red, as I think was proper anyhow.
My fiance and I had gone to the park with wine and other ritual offerings (the night before May 1st since classes get in the way) . He had brought wine, but I don't put forward that that sort of libation is absolutely required, so I ended up with some tasty Aquafina Flavorsplash water (citrus kind *s*) .
It was a beautiful night.
And yes, I played with "w" in my poem... it was not an accident....
