GRANDMOTHER SPIDERWOMAN

I am Grandmother Spiderwoman
Climbing on her web
Oh, there's a break
Weave, weave,
Rest
Weave, weave, rest
Keep the circle whole
Weave the stories of the past into now
Enter, and walk the web with the Grandmothers
Sparkle in the Sun
Work your Way to the Sacred Centre
Circle of the Body Whole
Where it's worn
Repair, repair
Work the magic again and again

The morning light changes everything
Yet it remains the same
Spin and grow, spin and grow
Bind earth, air, water, fire
Into renewal
Use all the materials to weave again
Begin again

When the end comes
The new rises from the Old
The Grandmothers
Weave through you and me
To begin again, begin again.
