Gaia

Gaia, elder god, first among the worthy ones,
first out of the void, who brought all things into being,
kind-hearted goddess, loving mother of many,
broad-bosomed Gaia, home to all who breathe your sweet air,
benevolent one, we look go you for comfort,
for solace in sorrow, for counsel in chaos,
we seek your wisdom, we seek your foreknowledge,
for you have ever been and ever will be,
so long as we have walked upon your sod and stone,
so long as we have shared in your bounty, so long
as we have lived, have we known you, and have we
relied upon your goodness and compassion.
Gaia, gracious one, upholder of order,
we have drunk of your clear, clean water, goddess;
we have eaten of your fruit, we have taken
of your riches. Gaia, from whom all life arose,
we thank you for your gifts; we thank you for your blessings.
