St. Patrick's Breastplate:
This important 7th century poem,
a prayer for protection said at day’s outset, combines Christian and Druid sentiments.
I have tried in my translation to convey the raw strength of the original language.
This is prayer-poetry from Ireland’s great spiritual Golden Age,
and the resonant “Deer’s Cry” is undergoing a significant rediscovery today.
“Gorgeous, inexpensive, exquisite” -An Gael magazine.
