An Alphabet of Pagans- Y is for Young
by Moonlight Wolf
Age Group: Adult
They have all sorts
Of new ideas and practices
That may seem off base
With those who
Happen to have more experience.
They may come in curious
To see what it's all about
Or perhaps because
A friend has mentioned
An interest in Paganism.
They go off to find
Either books or internet articles
To do with their chosen path
And do all they can to
Learn about the subject.
Many will ask questions
About why a practice is
Done this way, not that way
What this term means and why?
What does an experienced Pagan
Do when threatened by an extremist?
Some will ask questions
About history and magic
About the Gods and offerings
About the Wheel of the Year.
Some will find good information
Some will find lousy information.
As such many need to look
At what they are reading
And some will need to be
Willing to answer questions
Especially awkward qustions.
Young Pagans can offer
A fresh new perspective
And make older Pagans
Look at themselves and
Explain why they practice
What they practice
Considering that the young
Also tend to be curious.
Author's Notes: Well this is the penultimate poem. Hope you enjoy and give the questions of some young Pagans some consideration.
