Doxology To Demeter - Poem by Steve Trimmer

Demeter, Horse Goddess of moonlit night
The Cornfield Muse neath starbound light
Mother to Core, The Maiden Queen
Nicippe Her priestess, in groves o` green

Despoena, Her aspect of horse in flight
Arion of Equine Cult, unite
Doth She lament, Persephone goes
Her cosset Core, in Hades abode

She roams the world of Upper Air
Her crops now bane, unto Her snares
Ne`er to release, Her hibernal spell
`Til Her sweet Persephone returns from hell

Ere equinoctial vernal days
Her roving tears thus mitigate
For Proserpina hath come back to Earth
Demeters heart, replete with mirth

Demeter loves, in thrice ploughed fields
Fecund crops and flowers, thus She yields
At Eleusis Shrine, Iambic chants
For Brimo`s buskin boot they rant

Eleusinian Mysteries are Demeters rites
Nymph aspect in triad, the Doxy White
In maiden guise, Iambe, spring`s child
As Crone, She is Baubo, sullenly wild
