GEA Picture

"O troubled reflection
"O Throat, O throbbing heart"
How drawn, O GEA TERRA,
what draws as thou drawest
till one sink into thee by an ant's width
embracing thee. Drawest,

Wisdom lies next thee,
simply, past metaphor.
Where I lie let the thyme rise
and basilicum
let the herbs rise in April abundant" Ezra Pound The Pisan Cantos

Her equivalent in the Roman pantheon was Tellus."
