A Fatal End? …


The Druids of Erin, so the story goes,

Long prophesied the coming of St Patrick.

They told it in this way…


There will come one, ‘crop-headed’,

Over a sea, ‘cruel-headed’,

Wearing his cloak, ‘cowl-headed’,

Carrying his staff, ‘crook-headed’,

The table in his house, west-lying

And all his folk to him, replying,

‘So be it, be it so…’
