Day Twenty-Two: A piece of writing

Day the twenty-second: A quote, a poem, or piece of writing that you think this deity resonates strongly with.

Deep into that darkness peering,
long I stood there,
wondering, fearing,
doubting, dreaming
dreams no mortal ever
dared to dream before.

– Edgar Allen Poe


The most common and widely referenced when speaking of Herne comes to mind…

There is an old tale goes, that Herne the hunter,
Sometime a keeper here in Windsor forest,
Doth all the winter time at still midnight,
Walk around about an oak, with great ragg’d horns;
And there he blasts the tree, and takes the cattle;
And makes milch-kine yield blood, and shakes a chain
In a most hideous and dreadful manner.

– The Merry Wives of Windsor, William Shakespeare

Why, yet there want not many, that do fear
In deep of night to walk by this Herne’s oak.

– The Merry Wives of Windsor, William Shakespeare

 Books – ‘In Search for Herne the Hunter‘ by Eric Fitch.
