Introductory Poem

  The Tuatha and their leader Lugh Once roamed the Emerald Isle Until one day the mortals came Their souls without a smile They could not hear the music Of Nature’s symphony A harmony that’s only For those who do believe So magic in a moment left The Earth that very day When the Tuatha dé Danann disappeared From the land where they longed to stay As fast as a blink of your eye They could not be found For they’d traveled to an Other World Far, far underground For thousands of years they lived In bright caverns under the sea In castles covered with lava rock Their souls longing to be free Tír na nÓg, the Land of Youth Where purple rivers flow Another dimension, a way of life With magic they’ll always know Beneath the waves there was no chance To taste the Earth’s blue sky So the enchantment was forever sealed Never again could they fly In time their magic faded Their hopes and spirits dimmed Their lovely world turned dull and grayed So it has been said You may have heard of them in stories As Faeries or as Elves But, Oh, my friend, you do not know The truth behind themselves Far from garden ghosts or winged lights Or sparkling apparitions The Elven people are alive today It’s not a superstition Where and how and who are they? Questions you may ask The answers now I’ll give you That’s my very task It all began some time ago When Lugh the Shining One Took action though he wasn’t sure Of how it could be done So here is his adventure With his friends today The restoration of a mystic kingdom Of the Elven and the Fae The story of the Tuatha dé Danann A romance of the soul How the blood coursing through your veins Is Elven blood that makes you whole
