The beauty of the rowan tree has inspired many of us to create works of great importance, including art, literature and poetry. The following work comes from the true spirit of the Rowan tree reaching out to us and touching the heart of Man.

"The Bonny Rowan"

The ancients sing and tell the tale of the bonny Rowan,
Tree of Life, by gods' ordained forever named and knowing.
Zeus' chalice, he did gift, to fair Hebe for safe keeping.
Through demons' trick, the cup did slip and left Olympus weeping.
His Eagle sent to demons' nest for battle and retrieval,
This Hope of man to cleanse the land and nourish all the people.

The demons hissed and Eagle screeched, in combat they did join
And where 'er brave Eagle blood or feather fell, sprang the bonny Rowan.
Each drop a berry, each quill a leaf on branch on trunk on root
Sunk deep in every crag and cairn with dragon curled at foot.

Mighty Thor, the thunder god, who in River swift would perish
With loving arms she swept him up, a Mother's child to cherish.

The cycle of the second Moon turns the Wheel of making,
The crafter of the wood begins, her tools in hands unshaken.
Brigid's spindles spinning thus, Fire arrow's shaft as well,
Shot from bow, the arc, Sun's glow as o'er horizon fell.

By wand and rune and amulet, protect this home from those
Who would do harm, enchant, alarm, Oh Sister of the Rose.
So now you see and Blessed be, by this magical and holy tree.
Walk shall we under limb and be, children of the bonny Rowan.
