Article: Worship of Eostre - A poem for Eostre, the Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring.

With my green pointy hat/   sitting proudly atop my head/   I remember the words/   that my Grandmother once said/   "Remember the Earth, child/   always hold Her close/   Treat her with kindness/   and respect Her the most/   For she is our Mother/   and we are Her babes/   And honoring Her brings us/   closer to the Olde Ways"/   So, give love to the Mother/   this Ostara and on/   And keep the Olde Ways alive/   in our daughters and sons.      ~ (c) Leandra 3/15/13

☆ Ostara's Bonnet: A pagan ‘take’ on the Easter bonnet idea. Ostara was the ancient Saxon Goddess of the Spring. Her festival was taken over by Christianity, but her influence lives on as ‘Easter’ is an alternative spelling of her name .
