land of forever youth part three

then he began telling 
the story 
of the magical land and his love 
tears rolling down 
his cheeks 
broken hearted 
in the magical land 
of Tir Na Nog 

just as he was 
ending the story 
in great weariness 
with the pain 
inside his heart 
swept completely 
away in feelings 
of painful emotion 
closing his eyes 
he fell into 
eternal slumber 

even to this very day 
fishermen and lighthouse keepers 
they sometimes 
see on foggy nights 
when the moon 
is full face 
a shimmering 
white horse dancing 
on the top 
of the waves 
along the shores 
of Ireland 
Niamh the red haired maiden 
still rides the horse 
forever searching 
for her lost love , 
her soul will never rest 
until she finds 
her beautiful Oisin 
in her his love 
never died .

this story was told to me by a granny when i was young i cried 
it was so sad yet even now so beautiful
