Song For Newgrange
by Kate Bowditch, MA, LMHC
Age Group: Adult
The ancient words and
The ancient ceremonies
Scattered to the winds
By time, force, and neglect.
Yielding, people walked a different path.
Awakens our memory.
We need to listen
With all our heart and soul.
Stones call us home, whispering our names.
The ancient stones and
The ancient ceremonies
We awaken now,
Remembering our names.
Heads turn, hearts opening to the sound.
We sing old lessons.
We sing with a new language.
We dance new rhythms.
Returning Home, walking straight again.
Author's Notes: Song for Newgrange is the opening poem of my latest book, "The Ghosts of Newgrange, Ancient Ceremony Remembered."
"Song for Newgrange" honors the tenacious hold we have upon our early understanding of the world, developed and lost at Ireland's mystical Newgrange, the oldest covered sacred site on earth.
Order "Ghosts of Newgrange" at Lulu.com
