There's been a lot of water collecting in this blog lately, but before pumping it dry, here's one more interpretation of the megalithic art at Loughcrew and and other megalithic sites in Ireland.
|Conwell engraving: detail from Cairn L, Loughcrew c. 1870|
Rivers teeming life and light ̶̶
smithereens of sun,
spicules of stars ̶
we took them from the water,
embellished the stones,
so they would flow into the bodies of our dead,
who would run with the rivers,
live to be old as the earth
shine bright as the stars.
