A Blessing for the Brave and Tender by Molly Remer


Painting by Andrea Redmond

May you be brave
in your devotion
and bold
in your noticing.
May you be audacious
in your hope
and courageous
in your listening.
May you be stubborn
in your joy
and tender
in your determination.
May you hold yourself
and others
with fierce trust
and ferocious,

Poem and painting from our upcoming anthology, Warrior Queen: Answering the Call of The Morrigan.
