The Witch - Wise Woman of the People.
Witch, Wiccan, Cunning Folk & Healers, this poem is to honour them and their suffering. 2013 will be a year for remembering the men and women who were killed by burning during the witch trials. Witches. Wiccan, old folk, disabled and the feeble-minded. Today, would you call a doctor evil and cast him into the fire? Would you kill the pharmacist who dispenses your pills? These were dark, terrible days when poor people were left without help for their ills; they were too afraid to go and gather herbs from the woods for fear of their lives, because of which some of the healing medicines and herb are now lost and forgotten.
Original Story written and narrated by Lynda.F.Tallis. 2010
