Seasonal Poetry / Prayer List

Each Lent and Advent, Kathy sends a poem a day. Poems are selected from a range of poets over centuries. Readers are invited to spend a few moments in peace, taking in the beauty, wisdom, love, and liveliness found in each poem. For a dozen years, the Poetry / Prayer list has been a treasured gift of these sacred seasons.

It’s Up to Us

 

It’s up to us

To re-enchant this planet earth

 

We are the elves and giants

We are the shining ones

Daughters of the Moon and

Sons of the Sun

 

We are the shapeshifters

We are the mysterious light

Shrouded in mists at

The dawn of our time

And it’s up to us to re-enchant

This living planet Earth

 

Up to us to midwife

At our own rebirth

Up to us to send our dead along their

Ancient pathways to the future

Up to us to re-enchant this

Living planet Earth

 

It’s up to us to break the spell

that steals the colors

from the world

and leaves it lifeless

 

It was our spell

We can break it

 

It’s up to us to break the spell

that steals the music from

the Wind and Rain

 

It is our spell

We can break it

 

We will dance the magic dance

and our bodies will remember

We will sing the magic songs

and together we’ll remember

How to live together

How to love each other

How to ride the eagle

How to call the deer

Home.
