They yearned to dance in the moonlight,
to chant their benedictions in the glorious dark,
to worship fire and sky and earth’s matriarch.

Puritans descended, without a drop of insight,
preaching hate, slander and fear
and hunted so-called demons into eternal midnight. 

Remembered in Salem, a witches hallmark,
they yearned to dance in the moonlight.
