Deae matres

  (found at Corinium)


A Romano-British stone relief

from a nearby temple

three seated women

their faces softened by wind, rain

and love I like to think


they bear their small harvests

on their knees


oh mother goddesses

send blessings

on the land

fill the mouths of children

with bread and apples
