I recently found a little book of Celtic Wisdom on the shelves of a Thrift Shop. One of the interesting snippets is The Druid’s Song of Twelve, taken from traditional Breton writings. Featuring it here as we celebrate 12 Lords a Leaping seemed appropriate. See what you make of it. What’s your favorite line? Every comment will qualify for my draw.

Twelve months and twelve signs
Eleven priests, armed
Ten enemy ships have been seen
Nine white little hands on the table in the open air and nine mothers who moan a lot
Nine dwarfs dancing around the fountain
The sow and her nine young wild boars
Eight winds blowing; eight fires; eight heifers white as foam, heifers of the Lady
Seven suns, and seven moons, seven planets, seven elements including the flour of the air
Six small children of wax; six medicinal plants in the small pot
Five parts of the land; five age groups in the length of time; five rocks on our sister
Four sharpening stones belonging to Merlin which hone the swords of the brave
Three: there are three parts of the world; three beginnings and three purposes for the man as for the oak. Three kingdoms of Merlin, full of golden fruit, full of brilliant flowers, full of small children’s laughter
Two oxen yoked together; they pull, they will expire; see the wonder
One. No series for the number one; the single Need, the Death, the father of Pain, nothing before, nothing more.

Before you go, don’t forget to leave a comment in order to be entered to win paperback copies of The Wounded Warrior Series: Dark Irish Knight, Haunted Knights and Dance of Love. (Canada, USA, UK).

    I really liked the line for three. But to give this it’s due would take hours of contemplation!

  2. Riley

    That list is all over the place. It would be interesting to know more about the context in which it was written. Twelve is ominous.

  3. Judy Cox

    I liked the first one: Twelve months and twelve signs. It’s not only medieval, it’s used today by many to explain personalities.

    Thanks for the interesting comment suggestion, Anna. 🙂

    Thanks for an awesome giveaway!!

  19. Tracy Dyson

    I really liked number three, how it mentioned The Kingdoms of Merlin. All of them sound like riddles. My favorite was number one.
    “One. No series for the number one; the single Need, the Death, the father of Pain, nothing before, nothing more”
    It’s almost like it’s prepairing you to have nothing. First you are alone and then you die. Man, that is deep.

  20. Aly P

    I like the 3 kingdoms of Merlin 🙂
    Thank you!

  21. Eniko

    All of the lines have something interesting and thought provoking.

  23. Susan P

    I love the song of twelve! I like the line about 10 ships (we will forget the “enemy” part). I love ship books too, so I pick that one.

  24. Jeannie Platt

    I have to say I love this line. As merlin was the first wizard that captured my attention.

  26. Fannie

    This is a new genre for me. I like #7. Seven suns, Seven moons, seven planets, seven elements including the flour of the air. Puzzling but Still I like it.
    I am not sure what *flour of the air* means though.

  27. Jan Goodard

    Just imagining 9 dwarfs dancing around a fountain makes me smile. Although it is not PC today.

  28. Sha'Mona Hagan

    I liked “Nine dwarfs dancing around the fountain”. It kind of made me picture a mystical place filled with magic and wonder. Fairies and elves and other magical creatures all dancing around in this hidden place. It all so wondrous.

  29. Virginia H

    I like this line Six small children of wax; six medicinal plants in the small pot

  30. Lori h

    Nine dwarfs dancing around the fountain makes me think of the Hobbit 🙂
