Good Afternoon Lovers of Folklore!

Years ago I received this poem from a friend of mine. I have no idea
who the author is, and would greatly appreciate an email from anyone
who may know.

We will worship like the Druids,
Drinking strange fermented fluids,
Running naked through the woo-ids,
Coz that's good enough for me!

I'll go get my golden sickle
And I'll wear it where it tickles
It ain't used for cuttin' pickles!
And it's good enough for me!

It’s not exactly a scholarly account of what a druid is, and I’m sure
it’s all intended in fun. But it did get me to thinking “who, exactly,
were the druids?”

I recently read the most wonderful book on druids called
“The Mysteries of Druidry” by Brendan Cathbad Myers!
If you are as fascinated by druids as I am, I just know you will
enjoy this book. Here’s my book review.

Here's the latest article from the Folklore site at BellaOnline.com.

Book Review
The Mysteries of Druidry by Brendan Cathbad Myers, Ph.D.
Were they dangerous and mysterious figures to be feared or
highly educated teachers and healers? Uncover the mysteries
of the ancient druids for yourself.

I also have a new article on Oak Tree Lore.

Known as the tree of the Gods of Thunder, the Oak Tree represents
strength, power and magic.
