Fey Words

Spell

Uttered
Breath Quiet
Almost unheard
A call for curses?
A summoning of grace?
What mystic rites were released
In those few whispered syllables?
Will they change the course of destiny –

For those of us bound here upon the Earth?

Tell me of the fey words you said
Shall I be now overjoyed
Or should I wait in dread?
What was your intent?
In what you spoke
Breath quiet
Silent

Said

True Magic

I have not encountered

One of such power

That my very foundations

In your presence shake

No mystic arts did you study

Nor did you consult great grimoires

Or tomes of arcane lore

Yet my life was altered

By the magic of your love

Museum of Witchcraft, Boscastle

 

 

As a Christian, I am a bit dubious of things occult.  As a teacher of religion, however, I had an academic interest in visiting the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle, Cornwall. This museum is dedicated to witchcraft, magic, and the occult more generally.

The museum is really interesting and has several very good displays. It covers a wide range of witchcraft and pagan topics and while initially giving the impression of “clutter” the displays soon show themselves rich and informative.

Cunning Woman

A large portion of the collection is upstairs, but visitors with mobility issues can still see a number of informative displays downstairs (and view the downstairs for free as well). Displays include information of traditional nature craft, ancient pagan groups, voodoo, and more.

Grotto and Green Man

While much of the displays and themes are serious, there are some tongue in cheek aspects as well.  Notably there is a broom parking area outside the museum.  That said there is a wealth of information available for those interested in the history of magical belief.

The staff are helpful and there is also a small gift shop area. All in all, it is a worthwhile place to see if in the area.
