Now in the dark cold night
as the snow comes down

with only the lights
on the streets
gray and dim

nothing assures
The frigid wind
stings her cheeks
as it spreads her hair

Why is she running
her hands holding closed
her coat and its collar
through the snow the cold
the sad gray air

leaving the house
of her mother and father
swift as a bird
to astonished arms

Love this imagery.

What's the meaning of the title?

Love, Margherita

I'm in agreement with Margherita.
Really enchanted by this piece and would like to hear more about the title.
Much enjoyed. Chris

Margherita/ Chris,

Thanks for reading.

The title refers to a tune on Chieftains 3:

"3. Eibhli Gheal Chiúin Ni Chearbhaill (Bright Quiet Eily O'Carroll) [Air]/",
(apparently you can listen to at least part of it on the Amazon site provided).

This is one of my favorite ways of knowing whether I’ve accomplished my intention;
if after a time I read something like the thing above and spontaneously
start humming “Eibhli Gheal Chiúin Ni Chearbhaill”, then I know
I’ve been successful.  

Thanks again.

John
