1.The Wicken Tree (Angela Meyer MCPS/ PRS)
I am intrigued at how the old superstitions about Rowan trees (or Wicken trees) still retain their place in today’s modern world. A couple of years ago, Will and I were given a young Rowan tree for our garden. Referred to by the Celts as ‘Fid nan Druad’ or ‘wizard trees,’ Rowman trees (also known as Wicken Trees) have been regarded as magical trees since ancient times, believed to ward off the devil and bring good luck.
“Don’t leave your luck for a moment to chance…”
In the old oak tree, a blackbird sings,
a song for the Wicken tree.
Bearing fruit for wayfarers, guiding the traveller in need.
The Devil hung, his mother from,
the highest ancient branch.
So the ghost of a memory, don't leave,
your luck for a moment to chance.
