Voices of Light
Spiritual and Visionary Poems by Women From Around the World From Ancient Sumeria to NowBook - 1999
This text celebrates the spiritual life of women through poetry. From poetry's earliest source, a 4,000-year-old cuneiform tablet chiselled by the moon princess Enhueduanna, daughter of the king of Sumeria, who wrote from the doorsill of heaven comes the word: Welcome to Emily Dickinson's Why-do they shut Me out of Heaven? Did I sing-Too loud? Voices of Light celebrates these very different experiences and all points in between.
