Background

A description of the experience

Seamus Heaney – The Tollund Man

Some day I will go to Aarhus
To see his peat brown head
The mild pods of his eye-lids
His pointed skin cap

Naked except for
The cap, noose and girdle
I will stand a long time
Bridegroom to the goddess

She tightened her torc on him
And opened her fen
Those dark juices working
Him to a saint’s kept body
