Patricia Monaghan, 1946 - 2012 Goddess scholar, author, poet, activist and visionary

 The Bard fell silent today.
After battling dragons of patriarchy,
tending the wild places,
creating and teaching songs and poetry,
she earned her place as an elder
following her heart and the Lady.

The Bard fell silent today.
Leaving behind a dearest love,
many friends with hearts heavy.
Her scholarship vast and
storyhold filled with treasures.
But the Lady beckoned so

The Bard fell silent today.
She stepped over a threshold
to the Isle of After
to raised glasses of wine,
dancing with the Fair Ones and
the laughter of the Lady.
The Bard fell silent today
Her song continues on.
