Oh Féileacán –
Dancer in the sky
Bright celebration of colour
A festival of joy – as you flutter by.
Boldly spinning pirouettes among the buddleia
And yet you are so shy
Taking flight at just the slightest breeze
Or when anyone approaches nigh.
Stay with me but for a moment more
Please don’t say goodbye
Let me your company keep
My life to beautify.
Bright bringer of happiness
Embodiment of delight
Delicate expression of beauty
Wherever you take flight
What has brought you to my garden –
From your origins afar?
A reward for some noble deed, that I have done –
Or an unearned gift – you choose the bring – upon my lucky star?
Bright skoenlapper – please do not leave
For you out grace the very flowers
I hope to gaze upon your loveliness
For all my remaining hours
Cocooned by cares and worries – scores –
Binding my wings so tight –
Let me burst forth into Summer’s day –
And spread my wings in flight.
Free me now, from concerns and cares –
To sip life’s nectar sweet –
To soar amid the breezes of the air –
My soul and joys complete.
