That was so remeniscient of so many folk songs. I loved it. I loved the structure of the poetry and your choice of words.
Lovely ballad.
The dialog sounds authentic in this romantic piece. Good job.
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.
