the calends of martius approach
it is a time for the observance
of new life
all beings with the will to live
resurrect themselves once more

we look to
moveable feasts
singing praises to our chosen gods
strike the fire
gather berries
dry the salt

this julian year
augers well for grace
the crows dutifully counted
hailing an age of creation
as octavian becomes augustus
an era of reverence for the holy family
new statues carved
crowned with olive branches
banishing false idols
we find our peace
