A Silver Stater of the Dobunni, Circa 300 CE

 Heads: the diademed Silver Lady,

Mother, looks to the left.

Tails: tails flying, Sire,

the Stallion of Three Tails

gallops to the right.

 

Such was the coinage

of the Dobunni, Keltic

People of Two Bands,

ancestral to the Hwicce,

Anglo-Saxon Tribe

of Witches.

 

In those days, my heart,

we had our own currency:

witch-money, ours to us.

Poet, scholar and storyteller Steven Posch was raised in the hardwood forests of western Pennsylvania by white-tailed deer. (That's the story, anyway.) He emigrated to Paganistan in 1979 and by sheer dint of personality has become one of Lake Country's foremost men-in-black. He is current keeper of the Minnesota Ooser.
