Last week I attended Samhain celebrations at my friend’s home in Kilkenny. After the ceremony and the meal, we sat for the ‘Night Court’ which is a part of the evening where people share songs, poetry and story. Some were original pieces of work, and some, like mine, were readings of works by others. This is the poem I chose to read. It is “The True Love” by David Whyte from his book ‘The House of Belonging’.
