Painted Leaves

Yesterday after posting my Spring poem, "Eostre" for our up-coming celebration of Ostara here in the Northern Hemishpere, I was asked by my dear friend and long-time blogger buddy Leanne if I had any original poetry for Mabon?

Leanne lives in New Zealand which is the Southern Hemisphere where our fellow Wiccan friends are getting ready to celebrate Mabon/ The Autumn Equinox as we are preparing for Spring. She is a lovely gal with her awesome blog,, "Cottage Tails" and someone  whom I have been lucky enough to call a friend.

So this poem titled, "Painted Leaves" is for Leanne and all of my other Wiccan friends who are celebrating the Autumn Equinox.
Have a very Blessed Mabon all and I hope you enjoy the poem!

Painted Leaves

Colored bed beneath my feet,
The crisp, fresh air grows cool;
Painted leaves adorn the Earth,
All under Modron's rule

Aging Goddess; powerful, wise
Autumn's picture, Nature's guise
Celebration of beauty,
 the wheel turns on;
With painted leaves ~
'tis Blessed Mabon!

~ Lady Caer Morganna
