The Salamander

By Claire Doyle, 2nd year.

I’m made out of jewels and gold I have magical powers

I’m told I can survive a fire

Hernando Cortes was my buyer

He brought me on his ship because I’m a good luck charm

and I bring no harm

in 1588 the ship I was in,

sank I was later found on an Antrim sand bank

57. Salamander pendant, c.1588
Ulster Museum, Botanic Gardens, Belfast,
