A POEM A DAY - FAERY RING


Travelling around Ireland I came across many atmospheric and beautiful places. Some had a clear archaeological history such as Newgrange and Loughcrew but all the ancient sites and woodlands I walked were also described in folklore and myths. Stories of Irish Kings and Queens, Gods and Goddesses, warriors and the other folk accompanied me. This photograph of a tiny ring of toadstools hidden within the trunk of an old beech tree was at Knockma Wood in County Galway. The magnificent beech trees bedded in moss, lit with golden light after rain, were a magical sight.
