That was so remeniscient of so many folk songs. I loved it. I loved the structure of the poetry and your choice of words.

Just lovely. Form and meter were lovely, as were the words.
I could almost hear the singing of your lovely verse.
Ok, so what is a gloamin'?
I am really enjoying these flavors of other cultures through poetry and story. This poem is so lovely, even though I don't know what a gloamin' is.

"Gloaming" is twilight, the time 'twixt day and night... one of my favorite things!

I'd LOVE to hear this set to music--it's a beautiful ballad that has the feel of a very old poem--very lovely.

Can't you hear the mandolin and penny whistle?
Aaaaaahhhhhh twilight... Now I see. Love it even more!
Thanks for the explanation.
Beautifully written. This draws you into its Gaelic verse. I am going to print this one and give it to my Irish husband. You have an amazing talent for prose.
