The Wizard of Hagstone

I’m a hagstone wizard
‘cos I’ve got lots of those
collected and found on the beach
As not a visit is spared
before one is paired
to the others I have in my reach

I have hagstones on chains
which I’ve hung from the trees
in my garden out there in the sun
and others on show
where they bring a warm glow
as I cherish them every one

I have hagstones a plenty
although they are rare
for my eye as a wizard is keen
Their magic it draws
as I on all fours
search the beach for those I have seen

They’ve had many names
over centuries as
their magical mystery abounds
A stone with a hole
that’s good for your soul
I love every one that I’ve found

[Hagstones – stones with a natural hole – are apparently quite rare. And yet, I have never left a visit to the beach in Sussex (of which there have been thousands) without finding at least one].

    Hagstone… hmmm – Never knew its name before. Quite a keen eye you have! Loved the feel, the rhythm & rhyme, the message of the poem. Thanks for sharing your finds!

    Your words lead me on a journey of your homeland…
    Warming, inviting, addictive & edged in green at times.
    Thank you Jem!
