Enchanting

Frightening

Beautiful

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.)
