A Prayer for Ostara [Redux]

As we shake out
the cold cloak of winter
to welcome the coming
summertime warmth,
we greet thee Ostara
Lady of the East–
with glad dancing hearts
at your joyous arrival.

Goddess of the Dawning sunrise
wash us in your glowing colors;
Bless us with joy and abundance,
so we may grow
in health and prosperity.

Grant us a springing step
to hop after the opportunities
cracked open before us.
For in you resides
the ripe promise of better days.

So we pray.
