Chele,

Glad you posted some poetry...I especially like the one "We Can Be Found" about the wee folk.

Thank you both! I am especially fond of the Sidhe. And that poem of the wee folk just happened to come to me one night.....lol. Working on another piece of a young beautiful fairy who watches her lover from her tree perch. Will try to post it soon.

The lianhan shee is a fairy mistress of dreadful power, for she seeks the love and dominion of mortal men. Most men find that they cannot refuse her.

No one has ever described the Lianhan shee. But more likely no mortal can describe her; for she is desire itself.

Thank you Aaediwen. biggrin.gif

As I sit and listen to some Celtic music....I was able to put together the piece I mentioned before. I hope everyone enjoys it. It's of a beautiful young fairy who discovers her true love. (Have to give credit to my daughter who helped me with the last line. king.gif )

The Union
by Chele


Gossamer wings flutter in the breeze
As I sit upon my mossy perch up high
Watching as you draw nearer in my sight

Your every move powerful & intriguing
Strong arms to hold me tight
A dimpled smile always shining bright

Your magic mesmerizes me
Till the world around us fades away
Lost in your eyes, n'er to be found

You sing to me a melody sweet and true
Antics and humor make me smile e'ry day
Laughter rolls from my lips as we play

A searing kiss steals my breath away
A special warmth growing from inside out
Till I all but shine like the sun

He embodies all that I've searched for
Mending my heart, reviving my soul
Our union...our love...a sight to behold

Thank you CelticRose....you are always generous with the compliments. Although it's not your typical 4 line rhyming....lol....I thought it wasn't half bad.

Will have to work on my next piece.....and of course, it will more than likely be of the sidhe.....or possible the selkies.

This was a quick little one I wrote to go with my avatar on another site. Thought I would share it.


Winter has been too long
The wind much too cold
Days dark and dreary
Making this fairy feel old

I long for singing birds
And bursts of color to begin
The breeze through my hair
Warm sun upon my skin

I'll sit here and wait
And daydream of Spring
My heart growing anxious
To soar with new wings

Thanks again CelticRose. I have read in many books where they were called "fae"s.....including one prominent author (whom I cannot remember). However.....(there's always a however-lol)....according to my Scottish friends the word "fae" means "from", not "fairy".

Here is one that was written to me, by someone who was/is very special to me (my soulmate).



How Much I Love You
Jon P.

I was born
Into this world alone
Naked and without fear
I learned a different way to hear

As a child I grew
Among those I never knew
Never knowing how to act
I was fiction more than fact

But as I lived and grew, I found
A desire yet unlived, unwound
Naught that others would understand
And yet so close within my hand

As years passed so did my want
For that which other had not
I sunk in upon myself in learning
Never completely denying my yearning

Never thinking it could be true
Prepared to walk Earth without you
It almost came to pass
Blinded by the glass...the rest see through

But life had left
One chance to fly
Nearly missed
By a chance to die...a lonely life

Fate said though
"You're not ready yet
There is still someone
You haven't met"

Now I realize
Happiness was just a second away from despair
Because the universe said
"It does not end here.....for you"

I listened one last time
Before I left
My heart empty
And bereft

I called
You heard
You are my word

Naked again am I
I hear clear this time
I am yours
And you are mine

I love you...as I always will
For it can not be otherwise
There is no choice
We are living destiny

The Word
Jon P.

This feeling I have inside
I did not recognize at first
Intense emotion flooded me
That sated an ancient thirst

I walked awake, alone, alive, asleep
Let others be my guide
It was the only life I knew
Thought I'd seen the brightest side

I see others hand in hand
And wonder if they really know
What they have
If they have
Or do they just think it's so

There is a word used constantly
Everyday in life
It is abused, used to deceive
It's potential is denied

But I know this word so well again
The memory has returned
From ages past, from what we shared
It's meaning I have learned

For every time I think of it
I think of you as well
It feels so strong inside of me
That I can tell precisely
Where in me my heart dwells

This and more tells me that
The word inside is true
And the feeling that comes with it
Grows so much stronger too
Every time at you I gaze....and say
"Angel, I love you."

Has Heaven reserved, in pity to the poor,
No pathless waste, or undiscovered shore?
No secret island in the boundless main?
No Peaceful desert, yet unclaimed by Spain?
Quick, let us rise, the happy seats explore,
And bear oppresion's insolence no more!


A Poem by Samuel Johnson
This poem was written by Mr. Johnson of the scottish people coming to the new world. The New World at different times was called land of Ayllon, Guale, La Florida, Carolina and Ultimately Georgia.
From the Book, Scottish Highlanders in Colonial Georgia,1735.
