Seek Her, Find Her,
Love her, Bind Her,
Sleep not, Tell Her,

Show me Tír na nÓg


Seek Her, Find Her,
Quickly - Bind Her,
Summer remains here
a small part of the year


Find Her, Love Her,
Sleep not with Her,
Bind Her, Tell Her,

Show me Tír na nÓg

Tír na nÓg is Old Irish for, literally, 'Land of Youth'.

In this poem, I envision an old man telling a young warrior to seek out the beautiful godess of summer (when summer comes) and to force her to show him the land of eternal youth. As these things go in mythological stories, he may not fall asleep or fall for her charmes, lest he'll be lost forever.

haha, nah it's cool. now that you explain, i actually remember a scene from james cameron's titanic in which the young irish mother is telling her babies the story of tir na nog as the ship is going down. i always thought she was saying "tirn and nog".

Hey Thinker,

I've been good. Busy, which is a good sign, I gather. smiling face

I havn't been frequenting any forums, to be honest. I have not nearly enough time to spare to get to know a new forum.
What with the marriage coming up in a few weeks, moving to the south of Belgium this summer and a whole lot of other things. smiling face


Cheers !
