The earth

The earth is at the same time mother,
she is mother of all that is natural,
mother of all that is human.
She is the mother of all
for contained in her
are the seeds of all.
The earth of humankind
contains all moistness,
all verdancy,
all germinating power.
–Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179)
