The Scribe ~ Irish 9th Century


"Over my head the woodland wall
Rises; the ousel sings to me.
Above my booklet lined for words
The woodland birds shake out their glee.

There's the blithe cuckoo chanting clear
In mantle green from bouth to bough!
God keep me still! for here I write
A scripture bright in great woods now."
