THOSE WILLING- TO DO TUE WOR\C "Enrolled to represent taxpayers before the Internal Revenue Service" Tax Preparation and Audit Assistance (743) 667-5894 -Individuals -Overseas Filers -Small Businesses -Estates and Trusts Then was the time Of spring, and Hate and hope, all mine To mold and form A life of sorts, But all that chance I scorned. Guess I thought I was too good, and somehow smart, Or brave. The thing that held me back, Of course, was my pride I'd tried to save. Now there isn't any left— Hate and hope Have spent their flight. My love now dances Through the mist Of someone else's summer night, If poems didn't come Like they do, mean and kind I'd be silent, and never known of The someone who told me That love is just a word Not just a state of mind. Jo Kovach Law enforcement officials and woman's advocates have responded to violence against women by forming a network to provide help that is often only a phone call away.

Initiation Into Sisterhood We are daughters of Artemis In spring time we shall gather Together in unison, Beneath the willow trees We shall dance for her We shall sing for her, We shall chant out her name Blessed be Artemis. We shall link hands together In a circle To caress Mother Earth With naked feet. Oh, hail to you The Goddess of woman love. We come together to celebrate Our initiation into sisterhood. Blessed be your womb Prom which we were born. Blessed be your breasts From which we drank milk. Blessed be your feet For they have walked miles for us. Blessed be your arms That held us as new born babes. We are power For we are female, We are many Yet we are one. We call on you Artemis, To cleanse our bodies With milk from your breasts. Your love pours into our souls Filling us with ecstasy. Oh, hail, hail Mother Love For we are flowers, In need of sweet nector. Blessed be your name Sweet Artemis.

It's the latter because, as Richards introduc- torily points out, sexual- affectional relationships have been much more effectively hidden by most cultures, which until this century's adoption of the previously geographic adjective, lesbian, usually have had no or only patois words for them. Despite the obscurity shrouding earlier lesbians, Richards has intriguingly opted for lists reflection women's history primarily before before 1970 (the author may be straining a bit by including "Mona Lisa," Elizabeth I, and St. Catherine of Seina). Like Rutledge's book, Richards' is casual, not scholarly, meant for hours of browsing pleasure and provocation (over items like "15 Spinsters Who Need to Be Researched" and "17 Words Beginning with 'S'" by one "Connie Linguist"). List of further reading. Review by Ray Olson
