The Wise Crone
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
The Goddess has lived in the human heart
For at least thirty thousand years, and moved
Many hands to make works of priceless art!
Our Lady lives still, worthily beloved!
She and Her sacred animals still grace
The ancient walls of mysterious caves.
I laud the beauty of Her awesome face,
Revered in the world before there were slaves.
But then some wanted things new and improved.
I rather stay with the tried and the true!
Just a sixth as long ago, the first Jew
Came along with his version of the truth.
Compared to Her, he is so young, a youth
Without the tested wisdom of the Crone!
With the Cross, religion takes on the tones
Of the children whom the new God reveres.
Just one fifteenth of Her age their God is,
Yet He claims to be the sole way to bliss!
He may be better, but I still prefer
The wisdom which my old Goddess offers.
My Lady, thou art good enough for me!
Not wanting more, I give thanks unto thee!
