Tranquil and haunting, a melodious sound

Mysterious music, the notes swirl around

The harp and the whistle, one true voice singing

Ah those chords – perfect chords – around my mind swinging


Singing of Seaweed and distant isles

Songs that draw tears and songs that draw smiles

Love songs and fun songs, strange Celtic rhythms

Are they aware of the joy they have given


The vocals are haunting, the lyrics unique

Musical magic full of mystique

The Children of Ireland, the Emerald Isle

Donegal's gift to make the world smile


You'll never read this, or know what you've wrought

You've helped me so much find the life that I sought

Awoke the Celt within me, helped me find what was true

So to Clannad and Enya, Blessed Be and thank you!
