Sir Walter Scott

If natural features be megalithically significant, then the Kielder stone has a po-hum, in a Geordie accent ;)

Green vervain round it's base did creep,
A powerful seed that bore;
And oft of yore it's channels deep
Were stained with human gore

And still, when blood-drops, clotted thin,
Hang the green moss upon,
The spirit murmurs from within,
And shakes the rocking stone.

I think It's by Walter Scott, part of the Border Ballads, but I could be wrong.
