Happy Ostara – With Poem


ostara

The Vernal Goddess treads a land of melting snow

in a gown of green, sunlight twined in golden hair

She escorts Old Man Winter beneath the horizon

Laying him down to slumber, until the following year

 

Birds as troubadours sing in the spring 

Burying white treasures in castles of twig and vine 

All Hail Lady Spring in her procession

All Hail The Maidan, Radiant and Divine!

Happy Ostara All! Today is officially the first day of Spring. The Spring Equinox is the day when the sun passes over the celestial equator. Today is a day that celebrates the season’s change from the darkness of winter to the light of Spring, as well as the land’s new fertility. After the Snowpocalypse that has pummeled the American East Coast this year, I am certainly grateful for Spring.

PaganWiccanAbout.com has some information on Ostara crafts, deities, food, altars and rituals

Enjoy the following Ostara song below. I know I posted it last year, but hey – it’s good enough to post a second time! Three cheers for spring! Three cheers for new beginnings!
