A Tirelan Song - Poem by Sophia White

At the foot of the mount where the rock men dwell
And below the green plain where the goats graze
Tall reach the trees that Wintonwi hands
Called from the earth in Queen Ailynwy’s days.

They called from the earth the fether tree
They called to life the fair serenity
Of the trees as sweet as a melody
On the winds that blow from the crystal sea.

And the trees grew as tall as the clouds above
Adorned with leaves like feathers of glass
That danced and whispered to Saphilora,
And the Wind played in them as a carefree lass.

They called from the earth the fether tree
They called to life the fair serenity
Of the trees as sweet as a melody
On the winds that blow from the crystal sea.
The trees as sweet as a melody
Melodious trees of Ailynwy.

    This is truly a song. It has a lilting melody. One can hear the breezes among the trees. A very pleasant sensation. (Report) Reply

    I love the way this poem flows and sounds when I read it out loud. This is a very dreamy poem that makes me think of creation mythology. (Report) Reply
