Leanan Sidhe


queen of the Fae
lingers in the forests shadows
her voice as sweet as honey
she is compelling and so deadly
singing to all that are lost in the corpse
once so fair of face and form, now is black as night
sunlight and hollowed darkness draws near
hear her voice, wailing in the misty fog
calling all who are lost and hopeless

men will always seek her favor as the moon draws to a close
endless is her power drawing them hence
till time has no meaning at all

    Ah…you’re speaking my language, now, lass…

    Listen to this poem

    Hear the plaintive
    wailing of the sídhe

    fey
    guardian of Knockanor

    warning all
    to heed her siren’s call

    strains
    not for mortal ears

    enticing
    lovers hence to flee

    brief
    courtship, then their lives are o’er

    ne’er knowing
    just what comes after

    life
    eternal, or night.

    Sláinte!
    (Thus spake the Undead)

  2. “hear her voice, wailing in the misty fog
    calling all who are lost and hopeless”

    This line found that hollow lost part in my soul and I could feel a pull in the empty places to go to her…to respond to the wailing that matches the shadowed wailings of our own souls…

    Beautiful writing…and powerful!
