Goddess of Weather
Poems by Topic ::: Poems in Irish
|A Goddess from the heavens smiles
And on the lands upon
She smiles is basked in the heat
And the light of the shining sun.
This Godess weeps tears of joy
On her worshippers from above
Her tears are the falling rain
As the land is nourished by her love.
When the Godess by mankind is maddened
And the actions of man she does deplore
Its seen by man as a lighning flash
And heard as thunders roar.
The Godess tries to cool our brow
Our suffering from heat to ease
And so she breaths softly upon us,
Which we feel as the breeze…
When the Godess is great in anger
Driven by man insane
She vents her fury on the land
With typhoon and hurricane.
When the Goddess is driven to despair
That from her eyes no tears come out
Mankind will suffer for her pain
And many will die of drought.
The missionary man talkes of a God
Above whom we can have no other,
Whose acts in weather we cannot see
And we’re to forget our Godess Mother
Should we on her our backs turn
And worshipping the new one our times spend
I feel that worse hings may go
For sure war and drought wont end.
