A/N--The Bean-Sidhe( or banshee)is a feminine spirit in Irish mythology,usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the Otherworld. In legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die





the death song sounds

to call forth the souls of the dyeing

alone forever alone

she wonders

dressed in the green of her homeland

her eyes full of sadness

death is all she sees

a sound so beautiful

a sound so eerie

keening for the souls of the damned

(Keening is a form of vocal lament associated with mourning that is traditional in Scotland and Ireland.)
