For All Those Who Died
Erica Jong, c. 1981 (www.ericajong.com)

For all those who died
stripped naked, shaved, shorn
For all those who screamed
in vain to the great goddess
only to have their tongues
ripped out by the root.
For all those who were pricked, racked, broken on the wheel
for the sins of their Inquisitors.
For all those who beauty
stirred their torturers to fury;
& for all those whose ugliness did the same.
For all those who were neither ugly nor beautiful,
but only women who would not submit.
For all those quick fingers
broken in the vise.
For all those soft arms
pulled from their sockets.
For all those budding breasts
ripped with hot pincers.
For all those midwives killed merely for the sin
of delivering man
to an imperfect world.
For all those witch-women, my sisters,
who breathed freer
as the flames took them,
knowing as they shed
their female bodies,
the seared flesh falling like fruit
in the flames,
that death alone would cleanse them
of the sin for which they died
the sin of being born a woman,
who is more than the sum
of her parts.

Goddess bless those who have gone before us in flames and those who could not see that what they were doing was something that has left scars every Pagan alive. Forgive those who cannot or do not understand, and bless all of us who still walk on the path of the Goddess and God and still keep our heads high.- Blessed Be!

I've made a new layout for the community.. seems a little plain to me... well I might work on it more later.

We don't really have a lot of members so it would be nice if some of you guys could do some promoting =] Please.

I think I may need someone else to maintain this community with me cause I am not a good maintainer all by myself lol.

Wow... well this community has quite a few members for only its second day.... I do wish more of them would introduce themselves but oh well, every community has its lurkers I suppose.
So Anyways, I tried to make a new layout... kind of boring I think but its good enough for now.. Meh.

rockinanimechik posted an invite on my LJ, so I thought I would at least join, post, and say hello!

I have absolutely no connection to Lowell, but though, what the heck, there might be some interesting people here. That's the joy of the Internet...meeting people from all over the place!

I'm a practicing Druid, member of Ár nDraíocht Féin: A Druid Fellowship,. I just spent two years on it's leadership council, representing Canada, where I currently live, although I have lived in the US (NYC, and Long Island NY. , Trucksville, Penn., and most recently Charlotte, North Carolina), and have dual US and Canadian citizenship. I am also an Erisian, and I practiced Wicca/Witchcraft for about 10 years before becomming a Celtic Reconstructionist, then member of ADF. I'm also a "technopagan", having done spellwork using computers, and have "channelled" deities/entities while writing on my computer.

Merry Met,Blessed Be, 93, Hail Eris, fnord! (did I forget any?)

Hey, I saw the invite for this group and I thought I might as well join. Looks a little empty though. (Yes, I know that that was a retarded statement. Anyway, my name is clashin_thought(well, not literally) and I'm fairly new to witchcraft. Anyway, Hi!

I just made this community so it's probably a little empty right now. Don't give up on it already though. I'm in the process of getting lots of new members... and making a pretty layout.
Hope you new members will get this place started up by posting...
