ON THE ROAD TO BRIGID'S WELL

brigid

Brigid's Well. Liscannor, Ireland. The word "spring" has Dutch and German roots (springen). The early meaning was ‘head of a well’ or ‘a sudden surge or stream’. This contributed to the evolution of the word's meaning as initiate a beginning.

. . . Lottie / is yarning me, shaggy-dog-dogging me, / on the miracle-lore of Brigid’s well, / how Brigid appeared to a village girl / and how there was a healing done and how / pilgrims find their way to St. Brigid’s well.
