Song

Demeter's Song

I am the wealthy one
I am the wealthy one
All that I have I give to you

Blossom and bud
The leaf and the promise of fruit to come
The corn and the wheat
The grass and the earth beneath your feet

I am the wealthy one
I am the wealthy one
All that you have I give to you

Rhythm and form
The lover's smile and the workers arm
Your blood and your bread
Pleasure and sorrow, birth and death

I am the wealthy one
I am the wealthy one
All that I am I am in you

The change that frees
The heart that cries and the hand that heals
The eye that sees truth
The power to destroy and to renew

I am the wealthy one
I am the wealthy one
All that I am I am in you

*We are the wealthy ones
We are the wealthy ones
All that I am depends on you

by Starhawk

From Let It Begin Now: Music from the Spiral Dance, which can be ordered from the Reclaiming Quarterly.

* I added the last chorus.
