A Tribute to that Lady of Old
by Blanche Magee
Age Group: Adult
Venus Von Willendorf, Great Mother of old,
You fed the land in your time.
Lovely limestone lady in Vienna.
Fertility symbol of the ancients,
bowing your headdress in humility.
What mysteries you must hold.
Isis with your throne headdress,
you are the Mother of the land of sand.
Egypt’s great protector and giver of life.
Friend of the slaves and sinners,
you listen to their prayers.
Flooding the Nile each years with your tears,
your milk and honey flows year to year.
Pachomama great fertile lady,
Master of plants and seasons,
Causer of earthquakes,
the land of the Andes is yours.
The toast of Challa is bid to you,
for the harvest is yours.
“to feed and to give drink to the land!”
Toci, Great Mother of the Gods,
You purified the fields and healed the sick.
Lady of cleansing and bringer of life,
with your sacrifice,
you gave birth of the Aztecs.
Ninsun, Mother of All,
with your beauty and fertile lands.
Your people wrote erotic poetry to you.
Gaia, daughter of Chaos,
Mother of all,
Creator of the sea, sky and land,
Your names are many,
Rhea, Hera, Demeter, Artemis, Hellines
Greek woman as Magna Mater.
Oh Anu, Great Danu,
Lady of the Fae, Goddess of running water.
Giver of mystery and hidden realms,
your skills and culture surpasses.
The Tuatha De Danann your people.
You are the ruler of the otherworld.
Nerthus, fertility goddess
Eorpan modor! (Earthmother)
Folde fira modor! (Earth, mother of men)
With your great cart you travel the land.
War is withheld for you.
Peace is a certainty,
when your heifers are seen in view.
Umay, Earth Mother of the Turks,
protector of woman and young,
with the smile of the baby,
your people know you are near.
Your sixty golden tresses so bright,
food and goods are given to all.
Durga empowering and protector of motherhood,
mother of Ganesha, Kartikeya, Lakshmi and Saraswati,
Kali sprank forth from you,
to defeat Mahishasur that inhuman force.
You are the divine ground who brought forth life.
Your reign is great and supreme.
You brought forth Shiva,
The unchanged, infinite, immanent and transcendent reality.
Great Sophia, heavenly Wisdom.
Holy Spirit of the land.
Giver and sustainer of life.
Your name is hidden,
But to those who seek all is revealed.
I walk among your creatures
And see them as separate parts.
Giver of life, nurturer of many.
You are always there to eternity.
Forever turning among the black.
Your beauty is more than one can bare.
Your colors are vivid.
Your names are many.
I am only a small cell of your great divine.
Such variety and beauty you offer me.
My mother, my sister, my lover.
You are all of these and more.
