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).
