I thank you Stargazer for your compliments, and I am sure Elspeth, barddas, and castlehigh (and others) thank you as well (since a few of their poems are posted here too).

I am glad our words and imagery touched your heart---In my poetry, this is my aim, because I was moved deeply to express into words what I was feeling or experiencing at the time.

Please feel free to post a poem or prose of your own.

Regards,
Roisin angel_not.gif

Hi everybody! smile.gif

This is the translation of a song from Herbert Groenemeyer, a german singer and songwriter. Hope you enjoy it!

Derfel

The way Herbert Groenemeyer

I cannot see anymore
Don't trust my eyes anymore
Can hardly believe
Feelings have turned
I am much too inert to give up
It would be much too early as well
Because something always goes

We were banded together
Would have died for each other
Have bent rain
Have lent trust to each other
We have tried to turn at schuss
Nothing was too late
But much was too early

We have pushed us
Through all tides
Have frittered away
Have loved us desperately
We have denied truth as much as we could
It was a piece of heaven
That you are there

You have flooded every room
With sun
Have reversed every sorrow
Nordic, noble your gentle kindness
Your unruly pride
Life is not fair

Have danced the movie
In a silver room
Have gazed at eternity
From the golden arch
Completely lost, delirious
And everything was allowed
Together in quick motion
midsummer Nights Dream

You have flooded every room
With sun
Have reversed every sorrow
Nordic, noble your gentle kindness
Your unruly pride
Life is not fair

Your firm walk
Your true poems
Your cheerful warmth
Your unswerving skill
You have defied fate
Have never betrayed
Your plan of fortune
Your plan of fortune

I don't go away
Have extended my time
New time travel
Open world
Have you certain in my soul
I carry you with me
Until the curtain falls
I carry you with me
Until the curtain falls

At Twilight

Radiance fades
Birds seek their bowers,
While nocturnal creatures yawn for shadow

Night?s heavy mantel shrouds the land
Twinkles pierce the gathering darkness,
And whispers dance on the wind

Dusk

Dusk is as a great dragon
Bellowing its fire over the horizon
Spilling the dew as diamonds
With which to birth utmost beauty

Blood to blood, tears to skin
The night falls like a curtain
Fast and with such grace
As to break the silence of daylight

And the moon its its twelfth hour
Spilleth wine and water upon the heather
Leaving soft whispers from Heaven
And the stars remember when she sang

On the wings of the goddess of night...

At the helm of the battle
Eyes fixed on the fight
Wood to bone, steel to skin
I lay still at my altar

Many skulls lying bleached here
Beneath my own feet
Gods of war, fires of Hell
Stroke the waters of Heaven

Thine eyes have seen all glory
Mine ears stalk the night
Forked tongues whisper sin
Over hills drenched with her blood

Though the kings of old have fell
And the walls have died
Like poison, death awaits
To be drawn from thy river

Yet I stray from the skirmish
I pine evermore
To see spring's blossoms bear
All the fruit of a long life

Seven years have since passed by
And my home is far
All my kin are lost now
Between the moon the starts

I hear swords in the mountains
I sense voices on the wind
I spoke to God today
And the fire burned within


THIS IS A NEW PIECE I HOPE YOU ALL ENJOY!

Early Morning Mist
by Chele

I see...
An early morning mist
Floating across the loch
Blanketing the land
Hills rising in the distance
As a new day dawns

I hear...
Water flowing all around
Wee critters stirring
Birds chirping a joyful song
Gentle footsteps approach
A loving voice upon my ear

I feel...
The cool morning air upon my skin
The soft lush earth beneath my feet
Music in my heart
Peace within my soul
As my lovers arms embrace me

I see...The beauty of a new beginning
I hear...Vows of forever
I feel...The bond of a love strong and true

I am complete.

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.

We Can Be Found
by Chele

Rays of warm sunlight
Shining through the trees
Speckled and diffused
Creating a magical scene

I wake from my slumber
The petals of my bed soft with dew
I stretch and rub my eyes
And take in the glorious view

The forest comes alive
With the dawn of a new day
The music of nature all around
I flutter to the ground to play

I run on tiptoes though the pines
Stealing glances here and there
Calling for my sisters and brothers
Singing a song sweet and fair

When you pass through our realm
Listen carefully and you may hear
The whisper of wings fluttering
And gentle laughter in the air

For we are the Wee Folk
Spreading beauty all around
And when a heart is true
We can be found

Twilight Has Settled
by Chele

Twilight has settled
We are so far apart
A shadow of darkness
Covering my heart

He has gone
Far from my sight
My world closing in
Instincts say ?fight?

Staring at the night sky
I wipe away a tear
A fire burning inside
Will overcome my fear

So here in the darkness
I stand and I yearn
My cloak wrapped tight
As I await my lover?s return

Moonlight Stroll
by Chele

Strolling late one sleepless night
Amongst the blooming lilac trees
As moonlight shone oh so bright
A familiar figure I did see

Although I need not see his face
His presence felt deep within
A love strong and true beckons me
My soul has found it's twin

As I approach he turns my way
Gently placing my hands in his
He smiles into my eyes and says
Stay with me forever Mo Cridhe
