What wondrous voice is this I hear,
That shares it's beauty with my ear?
Sweet children's voices can't compare
And even angels should beware.
It is a harp in Ireland born
Upon an ancient, foggy morn.
Some Druid bard first gave it breath
And it survived him at his death,
To pass from hand to hand, until
It reached the present, singing still!

Enjoy this one

Trillium~
Such crystal clear beauty in the Celtic Harp.

One of my favorites is Patrick Ball's 'Castle Kelly',
from his Fiona album.

I was fortunate to catch him in performance and was captured by, not only his music, but his storytelling ability.
What harmonious beauty.

Thank you for this enchanting piece.

Greetings!
I feel as if they have all beat me with what to say....
But this is what I think..
As you read your poem it is as if you can
hear the music that has flowed for years.
Also your words flow together beautifully!

A very neat poem!
Well done!

I've never heard the music of an Irish harp, but maybe it's something I should check out if it's as lovely as you say...
