Inanna Events

Child of the Moon God
A soft bud beauty swelling
Nursed in heaven
Ripened on earth
Upstart and rebel you
Persuade with your nerve
The dress of the old, old queen
Cloaking your slender stem
On your smooth cheek you paint
Fire beams and fearsome glint
Carnelian blood red and glowing
Around your throat

And you go out
White-sparked radiant
In the dark vault of night sky
Star-stepping in the street
Through the Gate of Wonder

– Enheduanna
