A Prayer for the Earth


A prayer for the Earth, for the
fragrant, rich Earth, for the shining
blue ball where we live:
May the blessing of Sunlight fall upon you!
May its warmth embrace you like a great
hearth-fire, and nourish your green growing things.
And may its heat not exceed proper measure!

A prayer for the Earth, for the
receptive, dark Earth, a prayer for
the Circling Land:
May the blessing of rain wash over you!
May its sweet waters run through
your streams and rivers and render
them fair and clear once again.
May they find their way to your
seas, you deep seas where the blue
of heaven shines, and may your seas
teem again with fish of every kind.
And may your seas not exceed proper measure!

A prayer for the Earth, for the
Great Fertile Place, for the Mother
of Life:
May your old forests rise again, that
the council of the growing things be
heard in the land.
May we remember each and all living
things have a place in the order.
And may we not let our portion, the
human being portion, exceed our own
proper measure!

Blessed Be!

~Michael Green

On Earth Day, may you, too, be a blessing to Mother Earth. May you revel in Her, and She in you. May you leave Her healthier than you found Her, even if in only so small a thing as a compost bin, or a growing herb, or a poem that inspires.

Blessed Earth Day; blessed Ninth Sabbat.
