Caedmon, the first great poet of the English language was actually an illiterate lay worker in the monastery at Whitby, North Yorkshire.
The 7th century monks would take it in turns singing to the harp. Caedmon would step outside when they began singing because he didn’t know any songs and he couldn’t sing anyway.
One night after he left, he fell asleep and in his dream a man came to him and said, “Caedmon, sing me something.”
“If I could sing I would have stayed with my friends!”
Poetry came from his mouth as he sang.
When he woke up he remembered the dream and the song he sang and told the Abbott in the monastery.
All agreed God had given him a gift.
They gave him Biblical themes and he would compose poems. The whole of Genesis and the major stories of the Bible were all used in his poetry.
The first English Poet was an illiterate worker, before God got a hold of him.
