STONE HEDGE

Hear across my native soil,
The calling, 
Echoes ancient voices,
Raised in prayers ritual.
A forgotten people, leaving,
Their mark upon histories
Legacy.
Mysteries great questioning,
Lain outward for generations,
To wonder why?
Beneath the heavens vastness,
Behold gray monoliths reaching,
Upward.
In the circle of life and death,
As a continuing sphere ever,
Winding within it's self.
A seasonal calendar timed by,
Natures rhythm.
An inner heartbeat, pulsating,
From the earths core.  
Springs awakening warming
Breath,
Or winters chilling hand of death.
To plaint and harvest, or lay at rest,
The tools of trade.
The beasts of burden are released
From heavy yokes harness.
Pagan Gods demand tributes sacrifice,
Lain upon the sacred altars fire.
Druid priests carrying wisdom's staff,
Praying for enlightenment’s spiritual guidance. 
Sung in Gallic tongue, they chant.
Asking for natures bounty,
A good years passing and 
Healings curing power. 
An ancient religion seeking,
Answers to humanities quest to know.
Lost to times relentless pass,
Our ancestral heritage is remembered,
I'm myths and legends,
Mystical circle of stone,
Known as Stone Hedge.

    Hi Cheryl, you take me back to the land of yesteryear when things were oh so different. The magic and the beliefs were oh so real. Let the stones stand tall and proud as the Druids go through the ancient chants of life. I see this so clearly through your write. Now, you have taken great thought on this one. This is a sincere write by you. Doing it in free verse gave you a real scope in which to paint your vision onto the canvas. Have a good day. Catch you later. Your Friend always....MIKE.

    My Dearest friend, you are amazing, here you find me enjoying this one again.... Yes, I am a fan as you know it.. Not only to you, but to the many stories of the Stone Hedges,.. A mystery, I feel the voices when feeling the imagery when and where these prehistoric monuments stand. I've read so many articles documented from archaeologists, I find all the evidence amazing... always...Linda
