CAEDMON'S DREAM

Caedmon, first Old English poet, whose fragmentary hymn to the creation remains a symbol of the adaptation of the Anglo-Saxon verse tradition to the expression of Christian themes.

His story is known from Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People, which tells how Caedmon, an illiterate herdsman, retired from company one night in shame because he could not comply with the demand made of each guest to sing.

Then in a dream a stranger appeared commanding him to sing of "the beginning of things," and the herdsman found himself uttering "verses which he had never heard." ...
so, keep dreaming, keep writing, keep recording herdsmen.
