BLESSING: By Earth Be Blessed                   

May you know the embrace of Earth.

May she teach you the wisdom of time:
- the unfolding of spring
- the ripening of summer
- the turning of autumn
- the shedding of winter

May she teach you the wisdom of intimacy:
- seed embraced by warm, dark soil
- crevice traced by insistent stream
- raindrop clinging to new, soft leaf
- precious stones in hidden places.

May she teach you the wisdom of grace
- flowers entwining fallen oak
- healing gifts of common “ weeds”
- grain for bread, fruit for wind
- dancing stars through barren branches

May you be known in Earth’s embrace…
