The Nine Herbs Charm

A collaborative re-visioning of ‘The Nine Herbs Charm,’ an old English poem first recorded in the tenth-century CE. The charm describes the preparation of 9 plants that still live/grow in our vicinities today. It has received multiple revisions over the centuries -the first part talks about Woden, and a later verse speaks of Christ- so we think it is only appropriate to honor this process by its continuation.

To be published in Snaky Zine’s MAGICK edition.
