An Ode to Mead

a libation is consumed called mead
On lands that include the Celtic shores
This is a simple honey wine.
That was a popular drink in times of yore.

Mead has a lot of myth and legend and lore.
From Vikings to Celts and Gaels.
In Celtic lore from which to heed
Brigit was know as a brewer of mead.

In the honey the yeast must take seed.
There is the Great Goddess Maeve..
She is the Goddess of libation.
Her name means mead.

So raise a Quaich of mead to
Brigit or Maeve and say Slainte!
