You have bred this confluence
of Maidenhead and time
to wed in Holy Union,

We in vestments
speak for your seasons,
we Scatterers of seed-
rain life on your passive daughter.

Caretakers of physical being
we offer in its highest form
this first premise
to the year.

That from this watering
abundance issues
from life giving furrows
opened on the land.

We have sacrificed
irretrievable time,
we have sacrificed irretrievably
we have sacrificed

That this offering life,
the gift of Being
given to ourselves,
be loved-

and that from this dance
of torn flesh, blood and time
right mind froths into the mouths of sucklings
and richness returns from the earth.
