To Ostara

Hail to Ostara, swift one, fair one!
We welcome you, we ask your blessing.
We watch bare branches still lined with white,
we step with care on the slick-packed snow,
waiting for the first pale leaves to sprout,
for timid crocuses to pierce the ice.
Ostara, in you we see the might
of new life, of what will be with time
and through hard work. Hail bright Ostara!

To Ostara

Hail to white-armed Ostara, flower-maid,
within winter’s grasp we see, so faintly,
pale green against white, purple crocuses
piercing the snow, through a thin crust of ice,
slowly but certainly you come to us.
Fair Ostara, distant one, longed-for one,
soft-stepping one, we welcome you once more.

To Ostara

Hail Ostara, white-clad maiden.
Snow and ice melt at your gaze,
flowers bloom with each soft step.
We who late have longed for spring-time,
we welcome you at winter’s end.
I praise you now, O bright Ostara:
Earth’s cold cover send from here!
