Casting the Circle for 2010

DRAW ANOTHER CUP OF JOY

Compassionate Mother

who’s grace is beyond eternity

My friends and I will draw another cup of joy
from the wellspring
of your radiant heart

And raise it to our lips with a shout
Victory to the Mother!
Victory to the Mother of all beings!

And when this tavern of divine revelry
closes in the morning’s wee hours

We will all walk home arm in arm
with faltering steps
to our conventional minds
staggering with the intoxication of love
and waking the neighbors
shouting like bugle blowers

Victory to the Mother!
Victory to the Mother of the universe!
