Crone Times – a new book of poetry by Lynne Sedgmore

£10.00

I Am Crone

I am Crone

My black feathers rustle and soar

I have lived three score years and welcome more

I face my future content and prepared

So many loves, lives, experiences shared

Many more to come – I thrive in my prime

Make no mistake – this is MY time

I am Crone

Description

Crone Times

Lynne’s third poetry collection includes poems that face head on the issues, questions and experiences of life faced by women in their later years.  Lynne reclaims the word Crone by honouring and celebrating the beauty, power, wisdom and fabulous juiciness of the older woman living life to the full, with all her aches and pains, in good humour, joy and high spirits.

Her poems acknowledge also times of loss and the facing of death.

Lynne’s Crones refuse to be invisible or devalued as they express the glory of the older woman and as manifestation of Goddess in the latest stage of life.

I Am Crone

I am Crone

My black feathers rustle and soar

I have lived three score years and welcome more

I face my future content and prepared

So many loves, lives, experiences shared

Many more to come – I thrive in my prime

Make no mistake – this is MY time

I am Crone

 

I am Crone

My voice crackles, keens, calls and caws

Speaking wisdom from depths of ancient years

Let me share the Goddess truth I hold dear

I chant to release your soul from all fear

I call in the power of kith and kin

The peace beyond all suffering

I am Crone

 

I am Crone

In the chambers of my dark cave

Waiting for women bold, strong, wild and brave

To come, seek my face in my underworld

Allowing my mysteries to unfurl

My dark energies both good and unkind

Releasing all from ties that bind

I am Crone

 

I am Crone

Blood, bone, black – darkness incarnate

I bring so much to thrall and celebrate

Journey with me beyond all that you know

Trust in my magic and all it can show

My cauldron brews a potion bitter sweet

A drink to heal, make lives complete

I am Crone
