stonehengeWind swept open space,

Secretes hidden in Gaea’s flesh

Time and technology advance the human race.

Ceremony in celestial orbit

Buried in barrows…

The far reaching curse us

The silence of far go woods.

In darkness seven sisters shine.

Now all in place we turn back time.

barrow

Millennium times ten before a saviour,

With stone of axe and flint knife;

The story of Neolithic life.

The seas had taken the land away,

Building homes of brush and clay.

They sang songs of pig and dog –

While carving tools from bone and fallen log.

To the ground they offer – a body;

The caved in head of child of three,

stonehenge

The wood of henge would fade away

But it’s the stones circle still seen today

First came a ditch, then a bank, and then Aubrey holes.

The entrance marked with ornate polls,

Time does pass then it’s welsh stone of blue,

Repaired in future with cement as glue,

A heal added with Sarsan stones.

So heavy to lift they must have moaned.

To the circle rearrangement once more.

stonehenge

From then till now the sun and moon still calls

At mid summer and winter – spring and when autumns leaf falls,

By day and by night,

With High priestess and druid might,

The maigick of the henge comes to life.

History and archaeology run rife…

So walk the land with me,

In circled stones the past your see

But time has not done there are more secrets to come.

One Response to Circle of stones

  1. Via Email from Human Henge project
    Just wanted to say I think the poem’s great – very evocative and wide-ranging and playful, with some outrageous punning which works to unseat and unsettle, so you read each line fresh instead of thinking like you might know where it’s going.

    Brill!
