She weeps for a great river where willows will not grow.
She weeps for a field where grain and herbs will not grow.
She weeps for a pool where fishes cannot live.
She weeps for a waterside where reeds cannot live.
She weeps for a woodland where trees do not grow.
She weeps for a garden where honey and wine are not found.
She weeps for a place where life is not found. ~Babylonian Lament Of The Goddess
In ancient times, winter was imagined as a time when the Goddess wept for the death of her lover, the god of
vegetation. Her tears watered the ground, preparing it for the god's rebirth in springtime. The more intense her lamentation, the more the following season would be fruitful, the grains plentiful. Thus the rains and snows of winter were acknowledged to be, however inconvenient and even dangerous, necessary for the life
of the planet to continue.
Today the winter of extinction has come to entire species, and even the laments of the Goddess cannot bring them back. Rivers have died, lakes are in danger. What has been our part in it? We do not ask. Instead we reap the benefits of the death of nature, consuming more and more, discarding more and more.
The Goddess weeps, but she cannot weep enough to bring back all that has been lost. It is up to each of us, to help revitalize our earth.
