Pagan poetry from Mabh Savage

Jun 5th, 2017 | By

The Eildon Tree

May 21st, 2017 | By

Searching for a Snowdrop

Feb 7th, 2017 | By

by Mabh Savage I keep looking, I really do. I’m so used to seeing the snowdrops just before Imbolc, that it pains me that I haven’t found one yet. I feel like I need to see one before sunset on the first of February, as spring can’t really be approaching if the little fair maids

Over the Threshold

Jan 1st, 2017 | By

By Mabh Savage I’ve seen some sneering on facebook recently, mocking those who have anthropomorphised 2016 into some hulking hobgoblin; a reaper of sorts, taking love, joy and inspiration and crushing hope in claws of chaos and corrosion.
