BROTHERLY LOVE part 2 to Cuchalainn's Crossing

                                      BROTHERLY LOVE


                                     Brother--

                                     Jealous rage --gone dead wrong
                                     Betrayal won—Killed my mind and
                                     Brother....


This is PART TWO
PART ONE:  Cuchalainn's Crossing


Victoria Anderson-Throop

Based on the unbearably sad Celtic story of Cuchaliann and his foster brother and best friend Ferdiad. Tricked by a woman, to fight each other to the death, Cuchalainn killed his brother--then carried him--cradled in his arms-- miles home. (see photo in Wiki)
