The Ancient Queen

In the land called Tír na nÓg.

Frae th’ days of aulden wonders,

Frae th’ days of that first dawning,

Sin th’ days o’ a’ creation,

Frae th’ corners of th’ continent,

To th’ edges of th’ brim,

Across the Seven Seas,

Tis th’ nearest thing tah flying

Tha’ mortal man hath done.

Tis th’ nearest thing tah flying

Tha’ mortal man hath done.

Tis th’ wind th’ sail’s a fillin’,

and th’ bow that splits th’ waves,

and leaves th’ ghostly wake behind,

across the darkly deep,

Tis the landfall we’re a wanting,

An’ th’ trade winds that we seek.

An’ th’ trade winds that we seek.

Th’ tales o’ Leviathan sulking in the deep,

An’ legends of th’ beast, dancing in th’ lightning ‘n’ th’ tunder,

Legions of th’ winged ones striking with their claws,

An’ terror frae th’ frightful dreams tha’ haunt oor every nights,

I promise ye, tis a’ true, as true as th’ light o’ day.

When th’ Ancient Queen walked upon the land

And breathed her precious breath, an’ spake unto the wind,

Frae her first tah her last, as she sat upon her throne,

In the land called Tír na nÓg.

About jedwardnajera

I am an artist and a Poet. I live the life of a poet. I published several novels. Nena the Fairy and the Iron Rose, Dust of the Moon are among them, available through Amazon Books. I have spent over thirty five years in a classroom. I am now retired from that profession. My father kept a living record of his lifetime as he lived through the Twentieth Century. He was born in 1908 and almost lived long enough to see us enter the new millennium. He entrusted to me nearly 400 pages that he wrote through the years. Now I am continuing the tradition by posting my own stories and misadventures. I am trying to post a new entry or chapter each Friday. Check in on us at least once a week for the latest post.
