Welcome in the New

 
 WELCOME IN THE NEW
 She is fragile and gentle but strong,
 that is where many get her wrong.
 Ancient wisdom, forever young at heart,
 Birch tree in Ogham, heralds a new start.
 

 Aches and pains may heal and be gone,
 from the magical properties of this one. 
 Healing tonics when gathered; delicious. 
 cradle for baby and yule for Christmas.
 

 Spiky green leaves, silver white bark, 
 kindling of passions ignited from spark.
 Sweep away the old, welcome in the new,
 this is what Birch tree means to me and you.
 

 Twigs used for brooms, or tinder of fire,
 what then, flames your hearts desires?

 WELCOME IN THE NEW

CELTIC TREE MONTH

From December 24 – January 20. 

Birch Tree ~ The Achiever. 

Ogham Tree Meaning: Beginning. Renewal. Youth. Vision.

Birch is the first of the tree symbols, for the first moon cycle in the Ogham Tree Calendar. Known by the celts as Beith (pronounced ‘bay’) it is the symbol of new beginnings, regeneration, hope, new dawns and the promise of what is to come.

The druids carried birch bark with them as kindling.
