In just over a week Beltane will be upon us – and here in England its magic is already strongly present – it is warm and sunny and the blossom is out in profusion. We just need a wee bit of rain to freshen things up and water the thirsty land. A reader (with the delightful name Celestial Elf – I wonder what he looks like!) has sent me the following animated movie that he has made. It must have taken ages to create and listen to the lyrical poem – which, he writes, he created ‘after extensive research on how the ancient Druids of Ireland spoke their Roscanna or invocations.’ Thank you Celestial Elf!
