(Poem) Little Bear Requiem by Sara Wright

SW Lucy Background_BearPhoto_SaraWrightLook up at the star
that bears your name.
Re-member the story.
Once you were loved,
treated with deep respect.
Your Ancestor Field
bore a Bear Goddess,
and bears her still.
Her visions will guide you.

*Lucy was a yearling that was so tame she slept on the grass in front of my house… She lived here this spring and was shot illegally one morning in June by a bear hating neighbor.
