Prayer for the Waning Moon

The Old Woman takes her place
in the early morning
in the dome of sky.
Though guardian of the darkness,
and though yourself of advanced age,
you are yet the prophet of the Sun,
promising his imminent rebirth.
Old One, Wise One, Crone in the East,
Anna, I look on you with reverence
and praise you in the moments before dawn.
