Rather slanderous towards Pagans and Druids from a devout American Quaker

but his first verse is a boster IMO -

The Pagan's myths through marble lips are spoken,
And ghosts of old Beliefs still flit and moan
Round fane and altar overthrown and broken,
O'er tree-grown barrow and gray ring of stone.

Blimey, there are another 14 verses to follow that one, but what a name and face to go with 'em!
