Sidhing by Desmond Swords, continued from previous page
And when the other celts became subdued
our corner held fast and ran its course
unhindered by Caesar's penal law and kept
in Europe an order buried under Rome
which carried on its own way until
Cromwell struck his curse and began the process
of extinguishing the way of gaels.
But still we lingered on and kept our pride
until a dying ember's final comedy of error
repossessed a nation for those whose hope
was buried deep as the forgotten tongue of druids.
Sidhe -- The Sidhe pronounced 'shee' are considered
to be a distinct race, quite separate from human. Sidhe literally means 'people of the (fairy) hills'.
