Star Lore 1

 


(The constellation most commonly known as “Orion”.)

Gaeaf, daughter of the Winter
Danced in gowns of many jewels
Suitors came from far flung kingdoms
She said all of them were fools

Came one day the regal Dagda
Disguised as a handsome youth;
But she spurned him as unworthy
Called him lowly and uncouth

So he said with voice unworldly
“Ever, maiden, will you dance
For eternity unceasing
Never will you have the chance

For the love you spurned so lightly
You will long for evermore.”
As he left, she started turning
Spinning there across the floor

One red jewel on her forehead
Blue and white her hands and core
Belt and shoes of blue gems also
Spinning, spinning ever more

Then her father, fearsome Winter
Had some pity on his child
Placed her up into the heavens
There her form, a dancer wild

But there is no beauty brighter
On the cold December night
Gaeaf, Daughter of the Winter
Loveliest celestial sight
