Among some of the more practical tracts of text pertaining to Druidry and Paganism, I have been adding some  quotes and poetry and a few meditations and chants and prayers to my Crane Book of Wisdom.

Among them are “The Peace of Wild Things” by Wendell Berry, “Nature Meditation on Amergin”, “I Have” a Navajo chant, “Earth Teach Me” an Ute prayer.

Some more: “Calling My Name” by Jim Beer, “The Task of a Poet” by Dejan Stojanovic, “Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep” by Mary Elizabeth Frye, “Advice From A Tree” by Ilan Shamir, “The Druid Vow of Friendship” which I found on Pinterest.

Some more good stuff: “The Dream of Now” by William Stafford, “Stopping by Woods On a Snowy Evening” and “The Road Not Taken”by Robert Frost,, and “An English Wood” by Robert Graves, Brehon Law and Trees, “Do not be dismayed” by L.R. Knost, “Let Earth be healed”, and another chant called simply The Awen chant.
