Once there was a time when the world knew only earth-based religions, which revered the female goddesses as much as the male gods. This song reflects that. Eloisa Ramos has kindly provided a recording of the song in order to preserve the tune, which can be found below the lyrics. The brief pauses are where I accidentally distracted her and she forgot the words. :)

Once there was a time,
when the maiden was divine.
She played out in the wild,
the plants and the animals made her smile.
Now I’ve come to see,
that the maiden lives in me.
Apprenticing the wise ways,
remembering the wisdom of yesterday,
remembering the visions of yesterday.

Once there was a time,
when the mother was divine.
She honoured all of life,
she was a healer and midwife.
Now I’ve come to see,
that the mother lives in me.
Practicing the wise ways,
remembering the wisdom of yesterday,
remembering the visions of yesterday.

Once there was a time,
when the grandmother was divine.
We honoured her as crone,
she had a power all her own.
Now I’ve come to see,
that the grandmother lives in me.
Teaching the wise ways,
remembering the wisdom of yesterday,
remembering the visions of yesterday.

The Human Rights Act

December 1, 2009

The Human Rights Act, despite what the Daily Mail says, is a very good thing for this country. It has protected us from house arrest, our DNA stored on a database without our consent, and various other things the government would have liked to have forced on us without considering our rights. Here are a […]
