With the Ashes safely back on England's green and pleasant land I've struggled a bit to combine the game of cricket with a Megalithic Poem :-)

Most people are aware that the game of cricket is based on the structure of Stonehenge, with the stumps and bails representing the Stonehenge uprights and lintels. The cricket ball, of course, symbolises the solstice sunrise as it strikes it's way through the stumps ;-)

This is not a megalithic poem but I'm happy to have found it again after many years and to share it with those with a shared passion for cricket and megaliths :-)


If the wild bowler thinks he bowls,
Or if the batsman thinks he's bowled,
They know not, poor misguided souls,
They too shall perish unconsoled.
I am the batsman and the bat,
I am the bowler and the ball,
The umpire, the pavilion cat,
The roller, pitch, and stumps, and all.
