I have taken a leaf no bigger than a squirrel's ear
From an April bough,
And in it felt all meaning of the Universe,
Known birth and death
And the love of life that has no bounds.
The voice of the Goddess speaks not in the whirlwind and the thunder,
But in the whispers of the restless leaves
Of spring.

Now the days grow longer and the sun is warm upon our backs. We feel the presence of the Goddess bringing new life into our lives at every turning. Rabbits dance in the moonlight, and high above we hear the wild geese calling each to each. Celebrate the promise of renewal in your own life. Try cleansing baths with fresh herbs to renew the spirit. Or better yet, get your hands buried in the earth, planting seeds of the harvest yet to come.
