	The High Ones of Old

	Is there any one left who knows the tales
	      of the old high ones?
	Of Aonghus Óg and Cáer, of the flames of love:
	of the white stones in the ringed mist
	that came alive in a whirling knot of fire, 
	where by the shores of the Dragon's Mouth
	he loosened the ancient curse (her deep sorcery
	bounded by a circle of flame), and came
	upon the fair swan, his lover's guise:
	intoned the secret name that awakened her humanity?
	Is there no one left who knows 
	the ancient words of power,
	the enchanted tones of bell and harp;
	            the songs of life that tell us
	      	    of a time outside Time?
