    Here‘s Theodora Goss providing a good explanation of the lines from the Charge of the Goddess that say: “And you who seek to know Me, know that the seeking and yearning will avail you not, unless you know the Mystery: for if that which you seek, you find not within yourself, you will never find it without.”

    This looks fascinating.

    I love everything about this Prayer to Athena

    Here’s one of my favorite Mary Oliver poems, appropriate for this liminal time when Autumn slips into winter.

    Old Goldenrod at Field’s Edge

    Ice upon old/goldenrod/stops me at the edge/of the field, how

    gleaming,/this morning/the stiff stalks stand,

    slender, exhausted,/the gray boss — /all that is left of their/ golden hair —

    holding a crown of snow, and the rest — /stem and leaves — just waiting

    in their glass suits/to fall — /or, if enduring, to see

    the great melt, and the fields/tinged green — /and the lambs,/coming again from the

    cozy barn,/with their crazy prancing — /how the cold/makes us dream!
