The Dancers: A Book of Pagan Poetry
Author: J.R. Marriage
Publisher: Publish America
Category: Pagan Poetry Level: All
This is a collection of poems that, I hope, will share some of my feelings on my path in life and provide some little education to those who know little of Paganism in general and Wicca/Witchcraft in particular.
I started writing poetry because I heard of what happened to an American girl by the name of Tempest Smith. I hope the poems that I have written will help to educate people of other traditions in some small way to see that something like that never happens again. This book is also dedicated to all those who have been victimised, attacked or even killed for their beliefs or for simply who they are.
An excerpt from "Old Folk"
“So pass by the fire and dance close and fast
As the sun rises eastern and the night breathes its last,
And come morning depart here and pray leave no mark,
As if here had been just the dance of the dark”
The sun it has risen and the feast cleared away
The fire is doused and friends go on their way
The old priest he pauses and again looks behind
To an old man all alone on the ridge of a hill.
The man, he stands silent and alone on the hill
Cloaked in the green ‘gainst winters dark chill
But a young girl stands with him with long blood red hair
She slips from the hold of his hand at her waist
Turns and waves with a smile on her pale figured face
Author's Notes: Author Biography.
The author has been practicing Pagan of a Solitary Witchcraft tradition for over five years. Since early childhood interests have ranged from ecology and the natural environment to such diverse subjects as Old English language and how to rebuild the transmission of a Rover SD1. Strangely the former has been a lot more sucessful.
This is the author's first collection of pagan poetry and covers a selection of subjects, from festivals to fantasy to family and back again.
Born in Colchester, Essex in 1975 the author has lived in that area for the majority of his life and coming from a farming family has come to know the land and the seasons of that area of Britain well.
He currently resides in a village quite close to the historic town of Colchester.
At present he doesn’t have any pets, mainly because he’s worried they would be saner than he is…
