I am the handmaid of the earth, I broider fair her glorious gown, And deck her on her days of mirth With many a garland of renown. And while Earth's little ones are fain And play about the Mother's hem, I scatter every gift I gain From sun and wind to gladden them. (by William Morris & Edward Burne-Jones).
