Incantation to Lady January

for Lidia Chiarelli



Lady of Love,

blow the wind softly

and bestow your kiss

to warm us this winter



Luminous Lady,

open the veil slowly

and gift us your vision

to see the spring to come



Luscious Lady,

scatter the snow

and drop the berries

to ripen this summer



Lively Lady,

melt the snow

and saturate seeds

to sleep deeply in autumn





Neal Whitman, USA
