Victor was a true bard, as evidenced by the beautiful legacy of poetry he infused into the Feri Tradition.

 

Thorns is a delight for any lover of poetry, Pagan or not... [T]he poems are of love, death, memory and beauty, and many of them seem to be written for ritual use. The use of Pagan images and metaphors within even the non-Pagan poems makes for enjoyable reading.

 

An intriguing collection of Goddess-inspired poetry.

 

This book contains much of Craft lore and symbolism and has been highly praised by members of nearly all Witch traditions. This highly acclaimed Craft poetry book is already a Classic.

 

Contains some of the most beautiful poetry to the Earth-Mother I have ever read; very suitable for rituals.

 

A truly magical adventure, inspirational for all who seek the Kami-no-Michi, the Way of the Gods.
