by: Leandra

Standing in her kitchen, she ponders her life

Her never ending job as a mother and wife

She thinks back to the days of Olde

And how the witches lived as the stories are told

So much has changed throughout all these years

Fear for their lived replaced with new fears

Do we let it slip at work of the path that we follow?

And face friendships replaced by words that are hollow?

She stirs a pot that’s simmering on the stove

Thinking back again to her ancestors in groves

Gone are the cauldrons and cast iron pots

Replaced by microwaves and thousands of watts

Gone are the secret circles under the trees

Replaced by online covens and groups with fees

Gone are the herbal remedies prepared with love and care

Replaced by drugstores selling remedies by the pair

When she thinks of what’s been lost, her heart grows heavy with grief

But before heart breaks she remembers one detail with relief

The witches of Olde and their way that was wise

Are not gone completely or buried with lies

The greatest lesson they taught and passed down through the ages

Was to hold inside the wisdom and safeguard the sages

They taught us to blend in and adapt to the times

So that we may survive, grow and pass along their rhymes

So while she may not use a pot made of iron or stir with a branch from a tree

She takes pride in the knowledge that a witch she is now and will always be!

  • The Sisterhood of Avalon

    TriskeleThe Sisterhood of Avalon (SOA) was founded in 1995 to serve as a receptacle of lore and wisdom for all aspects of the study of Avalon, as well as to act as a medium for community building for all who are beckoned to Her shores. Over time, the SOA has evolved to become a Sisterhood in truth, united in disciplined work and dedication, and committed to re-establishing women's connections to a strong Celtic-based Western tradition. Through study, research, and personal workings we are once again recalling our heritage.
