Poem with original concept art.

Boggarts can be found in the foklore of many regions across the British isles, but especially in the North West. Often described a short, ugly and uncouth, sometimes hairy, sometimes not. They are said to unhabit houses, marshes, woodlands, live under bridges or sometimes on dangerous bends in the road. Their temperament appears to vary from mischievous to malevolent.

Perhaps the best known of all Boggart tales, is The Boggart and the Farmer or The Hairy boggart and this story is referenced in our poem.
