I liked that Anabelle. Very nice.

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.

I'm so glad you can't copyright a title =)

/me suddenly wonders how many poems exist entitled "The Word"

here's mine, just because I think it'd be interesting to have two poems of the same title in the same thread, and because I haven't posted any poems in here. All of mine so far have been in my "Waters of Life" thread...


?The Word"

The flow
A wave in my soul
An ebbing tide
A waning moon
Leaving words in my mind
Words that bear a message
A new set of text
A new definition
A new set of concepts
Those foreign to the rest
These concepts acquire clarity
The thought acquires meaning
My spirit is alive in every fiber of my being
I am that I become
I become that I feel
I feel that which is eternal
The eternal is the ethereal
The ethereal is a thought
A thought is...
The word.

Aaediwen,
I have to say "The Word" is honestly one of your greatest pieces for it evokes what every person goes through, especially writers. Getting it to the page with all your heart is all that counts, and you have accomplished that in many ways, good friend!

I also have to add that Chele's works are quite beautiful! The imagery is exquisite, I must say. Your use of meter and the written word is very pleasing indeed!

I have a tiny splinter of a newer piece that I started on Wednesday, I do believe. Aaediwen spied it and thought it a dandy little entree! It is basically Celtic ballad I had swimming around in my musical fish bowl of a mind...sometimes, these ideas come to me while humming a tune or plucking my guitar. Anyway, enjoy!


The sounds from the mountains
Drifting out over Heaven
Fell upon all dale and glen
On the night of her return

Through wood and meadow she walks alone
Embracing the realms where the seas once flowed
Her music still whispers between the stars
Whilst her beauty still lives in our hearts

I'll open my eyes and sing to my love
Yes, I'll follow her long, flowing gown
From the northern-most lands to the halls of my lord
I will sing of my dear maiden's crown

Through fire and tempest she threads her song
Fulfilling the works of her kin and their throne
Her music lifts my heart up to the sun
In her kingdom remains only one

CelticRose: That's only part of it. The man's a musician too! I tell you I for one am unworthy of the presence of such greatness as his. notworthy.gif notworthy.gif

All hail Haldur the great!

That said, I've been working with Haldur on additions to the piece he posted above. I heard a stream to go with it as I read it, so I just started writing. The end result between the two of us follows:


"The Last Sidhe Queen"
By: Josh Felty and Anthony Creech

The sounds from the mountains
Drifting out over Heaven
Fell upon all dale and glen
On the night of her return

Through wood and meadow she walks alone
Embracing the realms where the seas once flowed
Her music still whispers between the stars
Whilst her beauty still lives in our hearts

I'll open my eyes and sing to my love
Yes, I'll follow her long, flowing gown
From the northern-most lands to the halls of my lord
I will sing of my dear maiden's crown

Through fire and tempest she threads her song
Fulfilling the works of her kin and their throne
Her music lifts my heart up to the sun
In her kingdom remains only one

Her return, it whispers of times long gone
of spells, of parties, and of songs sung
Back she comes to her barren land
her image, a memory, along the strand

'Tis her I'll follow, through her lost world
to be with her, as change is unfurled
To hear her song, on the wind
Calling through time, to her lost kin

To be with her, in these sad days
As stories she tells, of those lost ways
Walking the strand, of a sea long dry
Walking with her, yet she does not cry

Cutting the air, her endless song rings
Sounding the ages, as the Bean Sidhe sings
The last of her kind, she's returning home
With her I'll stay, and she'll not rule alone

Ruler of her barren land, now this is she
Lost now, are all her kin, all her kin but me
Ruler of a land that was, before the age of man
A memory now of time long gone, a memory in the sand

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

Ah, after m'own heart....

Keeping the old spirits alive...... The Selkie one of my favorites of all Celtic creatures....

I really enjoy your work.

Very nice.... Sad but very nice. It reminds me of the elves leaving Middle Earth, as the age of the Elves fades away.... It also subconsiously brings to mind the many culture that have been lost through exploration, missionaries and so on.... It is sad to see cultures lose their identity.....

Well done!!!! thumbs_up.gif

I, too, am very much enjoying all this wonderful poetry. Such talented people. And loved reading "The Last Sidhe Queen." Awesome,Aaediwen.

Chele, you know how much I love fairies, but you'll always be the Fairy Queen. wink.gif Am really anxious to read about the Selkies now. Have just recently been reading about them. In fact, I saw an Irish movie on TV not too long ago called "Roan Inish" about a selkie child. Did you see that? It was awesome!

Keep writing all you talented people thumbs_up.gif
