Merry Meet! I just found this group and thought I'd
check in with a poem. Many Blessings! JLJ
Moon In Virgo
You are not beaten. The simple music rises up,
children's voices in the air, sound
floating out across the land and on to the river
beyond, over the valley's floor.
No, you cannot go back for those things you lost,
the parts of yourself that were taken,
often by force. Like an animal in the forest
you must weep it all away at once, violently,
and then simply live on. The music here is Bach,
Vivaldi; a chorale of children, a piano,
a violin. Together, they have a certain spirit
that is light, that lets in light, joyful, ecstatic.
"Forgive," said The Gods, and why not? Every day
that you still breathe has all the joy
and murderous possibilities of your bravest dream.
Forgive. Breathe. Live.
The moon has entered Virgo, the wind shifts, blows
up from the Delta, cools this valley,
and you are not beaten; the children sing,
it is Bach, and you are brave, alive, and human.
