The poems in this little book were primarily intended for use in Neopagan Druidic rituals, but there's no reason others shouldn't enjoy them, and perhaps find them pertinent to their own spirituality. Read, enjoy, and feel free to perform them all in your religion and your life. (For commercial use, please contact me first via my website at tregwernin.com.)

This is a collection of poetry taken from the "Young Gwernin" trilogy of the Storyteller series: historical novels about Britain and her bards in the years after King Arthur's death. If you haven't read them yet, you might want to start there, as some of these poems could be considered plot spoilers. On the other hand, you could just plunge in now and see how you like Gwernin's world...

This is my second poetry collection. Most of these poems are written in medieval fixed forms – one of my on-going quests being a search for ways of reproducing the sound and feel of medieval Welsh poetry in modern English. And yet, because the bardic art I practice is a performance art, these are in a larger sense not my poems at all, but merely pale imitations – poems preserved on paper.

The Ash Spear follows him in the thrilling conclusion of this first trilogy in the Storyteller series.

“Blood and fire, gold and steel and poetry, a river’s voice in the silence of the night, and the shining strings of a harp – all these and more I have known in my time.” As a wandering storyteller and would-be bard in 6th century Britain, young Gwernin encounters enemies both human and supernatural, finds love and friendship, and learns the true meaning of a Bard’s profession.

Most of these poems are written in medieval fixed forms, or approximations of medieval forms – one of my on-going quests being a search for ways of reproducing the sound and feel of medieval Welsh poetry in modern English. And yet, because the bardic art I practice is a performance art, these are in a larger sense not my poems at all, but merely pale imitations – poems preserved on paper.
