This One Night

hush
by fire-
and moon-glimpse
dark hill’s door cracks
spills haunting
fairy
song

A Samhain Sept, for Jane.

        1. I’ve been reading a book of Irish folk and fairy tales. One that stood out to me was “Country-Under-Wave.” Also “The Coming of Finn,” in which he kills the enchanter who burns Tara every Samhain.

          1. One of the things I like about the Irish myths is that the lines between mortal and fairy are so blurred. Like the line between myth and history. I don’t think even the Greeks would claim that Zeus really existed, but all the characters in the Irish stories were real. Or sort of 🙂
