Stubborn Sod

 

 

Enter her grove barefoot,
no leather here,
no blood sacrifices
done.

Offer her honeyed milk,
not wine. Offer water to wash,
olive oil, salt, honey, coarse meal,
sweet scented flowers,
cakes drizzled with honey,
soothing herbs, especially
those of childbirth

and breast-feeding,
rue, malva, and salvia,
perhaps a special dish
of cheese and herbs.

She is a presence.
