Celtic Twist ©

David Lee Sulgrove
Nine Mile Falls, USA
2002

Whirling twirling
topsy turvy
interlaced
intermingled
green vining
leaf woven
Celtic knot

Red the blood
winding through
the veins of all
the island clans

Ancient the memories
Ancient the path
shaped by ancient hands

Green the god
residing deep within
secret doorways
of the sacred
mountain side

Holding court
surrounded
by rising halls
Sweet with dance
song and wine

Merriment for the making
all through the icy
winter's night

Round the table
of twinkling stars
Hold the lantern bright

Heed the light
that shines
with truth
and mystery
most high

Narrow the road
we all must follow
winding unto
the blazing sky

Form the circle
Dance the dance
Revel in destinies
sweet romance

Join the chorus
Sing the song
Everlasting
eternity
of ages
lives on

Whirling twirling
topsy turvy
interlaced
intermingled
green vining
leaf woven
Celtic knot

Red the blood
winding through
the veins of all
the island clans

Ancient the memories
Ancient the path
shaped by ancient hands
