Happy New Year! We went to Borders today (I think I'm set on books for a while!) and I found Llewellyn's Witche's Datebook 2009. I had the 2008 calendar, so I bought it. In it there is a poem that I really connected with. When I read it, it was (for lack of a better way of phrasing it) like deja vu. That is pretty much how it happened. There is still a lot I don't know, but I have learned so much the past few years. I hope 2009 continues to let me learn as much as I can. There is always more room in my head for information!


At first you weren't sure what path to take-
The left, the right, the summit or the pond-
Nor how to pour the ale or cut the cake,
But in good time you learned, and passed beyond.

Though other roads were wider, smooth and new,
An older Way rose up beneath your feet.
You followed it, and studied it, and grew
And spoke with fellow souls you chanced to meet.

So now you stand, outside of time and space,
To dedicate yourself among the Wise.
The trees lean down to listen in this place;
The Moon shines as your witness in the skies.

"I am a Witch!" You say the words, times three,
And what you say forevermore, shall be.

- Elizabeth Barrette


  1. you were meant to have that datebook...and what a lovely dedication!

  2. Gorgeous! Perfect! Magical! That's you! :)

  3. I love that datebook Tori! It's where I get all my astrological information. My Mom always buys it for me and she says it's on the way and I don't know how I will survive without it. I'm glad you got one, it will help you in so many ways.

    I hope you have a fantastic 2009 too!

  4. My beloved bought this datebook for me, and I noticed this poem right off, too! It's lovely, isn't it? I picked up the calendar as well. Couldn't resist those gorgeous images in full colour!

  5. That's a great poem - thanks for sharing.
    Happy new year with books and magic
