“Through your mercies, Lord, may the months
be for us the source of joys, the years, of delight;
let them bequeath to us in peace, O Lord:
Nisan has its flowers, Iyyar its lilies too,
Haziran its sheaves, Tammuz its heaps of grain;
let Ab and Illul bring along grape-clusters on poles,
let the two Teshris give response to each other in the grape-pressing;
let the two Kanuns bring rest, Shebat and Adar, the Fast.
To you, Lord, be the praise.”
I was urged to write this article to give some answers to a question I have been asked many times. I am aware that there is a similar article being shared regarding the manifestations of our beloved Goddess Aphrodite on Earth in the form of avatars, and this question has been asked to me regarding this article, also.
