The Lady

by Rhiannon Keneally

Age Group: Adult


The moon smiles on
As I stand,
Searching for the Lady
Of the Green Land

The darkness is growing
And my need is great
To find the Lady
And seal Midir's fate

Speaking the words
Of the spell,
I repeat what
My ancestors tell

Midir, Dark Lord
Of the exiled Llyr,
Rose to new heights
And instilled new fear

His way was opposed
By two friends,
Who met in the army
Marching to the Ends

One was the elf Teirnon,
The last born of the age
Of the united warrior
And the skilled mage

The other was the Lady,
The legendary princess
Of emerald Airitech
And its only sorceress

No warning was given
As the army was destroyed
By the offensive attack
Of Midir's followers deployed

Before the Gates of Taranis
Stood the two friends,
The only survivors
Of the March to the Ends

The two entered Llyr alone,
Fighting on the Dark One's ground,
Finally escaping
With Midir never to be found

Midir's followers pursued
The two friends hurt in the fight,
Fleeing the Ends
Long into the night

Legions of Ancalagon separated
The two friends
At the new day's light
On the edge of the Ends

Escaping the Legions,
They rejoined at Aniron's Drop
To try to rest and heal
For a brief day's stop

Teirnon slipped to Mag Mor
And the Lady, in her grief,
Hid in Airitech,
Shrouded by tree and leaf

As the ages pass,
Darkness grows,
But Airitech has gone
To where no one knows

Scholars have searched
For the key
But only found
Melkor's Prophesy

"Many will hold Airitech
But only one will find
That evil's shackles
Will no longer bind"

Many claimed the magic,
But none complete
The prophecy of the Dark Lord
And his defeat

Now Midir marches again
And I fear
That the Lady is out there
But will not appear

I finish the words
That I believe
Will summon the Lady
This Hollow's Eve

Instead of the Lady,
Evil swirled around
As I sink to find
Shelter on the ground

The gentle moon,
Who had smiled on,
Phased to black
And was gone

The glittering sun,
Gone hours before,
Rose and set
Many times more

The sun soon stopped
And the stars fell
As silver arrows
On the dell

Dark clouds dimmed
The arrows' path
When enough of them
Satisfied the Dark One's wrath

Black demons swooped
Down and across
To kill and destroy
Every animal, tree, and moss

Showers of ash and rock
Poured from the haze
Of clouds and smoke,
Spinning me into a daze

Suddenly the world knew quiet
And everything was as it began
Above my head, the stars twinkled,
Belying the thoughts that ran

Surely the Lady
Would have appeared
But instead came evil
That disappeared

With that thought,
It could only be
That my fate is unlocked
And that the Lady is me




Author's Notes: The Lady is a poem that I wrote that very loosely revolves around Professor Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" story, except with characters and twists from pagan Celtic mythology. The unique people that I conjured up don't actually correspond with the poem and its characters (for example, Llyr is a Celtic god, not a place) .
