A modern Druid Poem

 

Many people think of Stonehenge and other sacred places of our ancestors as being the Druids temples, yet as truly as these are special to us, our greatest home is among nature.

 

The temples and holy places built by the hand of man can be fine examples of our art and dedication. I do not seek to diminish this for others, but to simply give my own perspective on why nature is, for the Druid, the ultimate holy place.
