Land, Sky, and Sea: O Living Druidry!
by B. T. Newberg
Age Group: Adult
Land, Sky, and Sea: O living Druidry!
If our great mother has conceived our groves
With roots of virtue dipped to reach your depths,
And germinate our energies in yours;
And if our father has inspired our limbs
With piety to circulate your warmth,
And incubate our energies in yours;
And if ourselves have canopied our crowns
With studious leaves to synthesize your light,
And cultivate our energies in yours;
Then, O Triple Realms, let bud in us
A hymn, that we may flower forth in praise,
And pollenate in poetry our blooms:
The wisdom, health, and wealth we grow
In every grove in harmony with you!
Author's Notes: I have a vision of completing a long poem summarizing what I've learned from ADF Druidry. I thought I should start with the traditional invocation to the muse for poetic inspiration.
ADF uses many traids to organize its motifs and concepts. Land, Sea, and Sky is one. Another is Virtue, Piety, and Study, which is the first level of a student's progress in the dedicant program.
As a Naturalistic Pagan, I believe in evidence. There is no evidence that deities and magic are "real" in the most literal sense, but they may yet be moving and powerful. These poems are a tribute to the inspiration of Pagan ways.
For more information on naturalism, see HumanisticPaganism.com.
