Bard Song is a collection of poetry, mostly in medieval Welsh and Irish metres, and reflections on the nature of the Bard in early Celtic society and the role of poetry within modern Druidry and polytheism generally. Author Robin Herne is a poet, storyteller and modern Druid,

“Robin’s dedication to the Old Gods shines throughout his work and this alone has inspired me on my path as an Awenydd and polytheist. Bard Song is a must read for Bards, Fili and people of Celtic and other polytheistic religions. I’d also recommend it highly to all Pagans and to poets looking for new and exciting metres with origins in the British Isles.” Lorna Smithers, reviewing for The Druid Network. read the entire review here – There’s a second review from Lorna on her blog, written after after many re-readings “I’m not sure if I can give this book an objective review as I’ve owned it so long and like it so much. ”

“It is useful to have a poetry reference when it comes to writing rituals or even spell workings and usually I am a bit stumped.  Whilst I am sure I could use a Roald Dahl poem in ritual there are more suitable ones. Robin provides such a reference in the Bard Song not only providing poems to use but also giving history and myth as a background.” Rachel Patterson – read the whole review here –
