Brigid, February 1st

Brigid Lore



1st of February 2016


Her wingspan shrouded in mystery

The small tortoiseshell rubicund

Ebony and golden forewings


Tangerine surged from chrysalis

A ring of blue, her spell, her veil

Little hands fold hollow reeds


The magical childhood craft

Interwoven square with beams

A Eurasian butterfly with four wings


She folds them around blossoms

The little ones, the innocent

Refuge for homeless and landlords


She holds them equally at heart

Sainthood flicks wings of grass
