Mother Jord, Great Goddess of Earth
Goddess of seasons, of life, and of birth
Goddess of planting, of growing, and reaping
Always evolving, and changing, never sleeping.
Your air is so fresh, it makes us feel strong
Your winds that are howling are just Your wind - song
Your storms overhead that bring us fresh waters
Form the playground for Ran and Her daughters.
You rumble and shake all over this land
Some say You are angry, they don't understand
Your stirrings are merely Your cycles of life
Not glimpses of hatred, or malice, or strife.
We seed, and we plant, we sweat, and we toil
We work very hard to grow in Your soil
Life giving foods sprout forth from Your rains
Our reward is Your Fruits, vegetables and golden grains.
You provide us with weapons, and clothes to keep warm
And materials to build shelters for weathering a storm
Fire to warm us on the coldest of nights
The dawn of your morning is the best of all sights.
Jord, Great Goddess, and Mother of Thor
Passionately written of in our ancestors lore
Plant in our hearts, the right things to do
So we can be gentle, and caring, in our love for You !
