Queen of Pentacles (Water of Earth)
Lady of the maize
Everything is born from you
Mother’s love nourishes the seed
and feed us so we can thrive
She provides our needs
and dreams of better lives
Joy in life she teaches
she guides us in the dance
We her children know of love
we’ve seen in it in her glance
Her heart provides her knowledge
More than book or class ever could
Her dreams have taught her what she needs
to guide us through her woods
Lift your cup and toast her well
our mother of the Earth
She has seen and loved it all
and has shown us its worth.
