Zoë Translates

Poems, original and translated.

After Cædmon

Now let us praise the keeper of Planet Heaven,
Our Goddess, friend and leader in love and justice,
And their bold, empowering plan.

We celebrate each and every wonder that she,
Ever-present father of beauty, has instilled
Firmly in who we truly are.

In their very first work is this people, children
Of stars and Earth, sheltered in the delicate air
From her holy, excited breath.

We shall defend with her this garden of a world
So remote and torn as if beyond her power:
The divine weakness of passion.
