With my green pointy hat/   sitting proudly atop my head/   I remember the words/   that my Grandmother once said/   "Remember the Earth, child/   always hold Her close/   Treat her with kindness/   and respect Her the most/   For she is our Mother/   and we are Her babes/   And honoring Her brings us/   closer to the Olde Ways"/   So, give love to the Mother/   this Ostara and on/   And keep the Olde Ways alive/   in our daughters and sons.      ~ (c) Leandra 3/15/13
