Questions Of A Young Apprentice
By Dan Shevock
“Why must a Druid first be a Bard? Why does he learn to craft bold verse?”
‘cause word crafted well is an able spell
with elements and spirits in his purse.
This is why the apprentice must rehearse.
“Why must a Druid remember the past, the dull lines of kings now long dead?”
The blood is the hilt, the barons the gilt.
The true trail to power is read,
from the lines of the kings now long dead.
“Why must a Druid meditate so? It seems better time could be spent.”
There’s none greater outside, more so than inside,
our mind where our ancestors went.
This is how your time is best spent.
“And why such order and disciplined work, commandments, and laws, and codes?”
The laws a foundation sustaining our nation,
for the weak whilst they travel the road.
Memorize ye must, the codes.
“Why must a Druid learn all the herbs, and powders, and roots and from trees?”
Healing and magick will help avoid tragic,
and guide much that the master sees.
So, practice in ones, twos and threes.
“Why must a Druid speak with the Fae, they’re fickle and flighty and fluid”
They’ve been around long trilling their jocose song.
From them derives much Lore ‘O Druids,
such flexible wit, so fluid.
