Myth of Nuada and Diancecht

by Thomas Harris

Age Group: Adult



Hear Me!
He came, wounded, to Diancecht, son of Miach, his hand be-torn and bleeding, Nuada, High King of theTuatha, battle boiling ever on, battle sounding beyond the glen. He came, seeking healing, for that which could not be wounded now was hurt and sore. He came, humbled, to the son of a servant.
"Heal me, Diancecht, heal me, I pray." The High King knelt before the Ovate, the son of the Ovate, with simple oration upon his lips. "Heal me, Herb-lord, of my wound this day."
"An' how should I heal what is worn and torn, High King of Mine, how should I preserve that which is o'er and done?
An' how should I heal the crown that's lost, High King of Mine, how should I heal the holy head? An' how should I restore that which is no more, High King of Mine, how should I return your hand lost sore?"
"With silver beams of an imbas moon, Diancecht, heal me, I pray." The High King implored the Ovate, the son of the Ovate, with simple oration upon his lips. "Heal me, Herb-lord, of my wound this day."
"An' how shall I gather the beams of imbas moon, High King of Mine, how shall I garner that silver? An' how shall I weave them into a palm, High King of Mine, so that the silver be fingered? An' how shall I restore that 'tis lost, HIgh King of Mine, so that the crown shall pass to more?"
"With my stepping down from crown, Diancecht, heal me, I pray." The High King knelt before the Ovate, the son of the Ovate, with simple oration upon his lips. "With wisdom we will as one bestow, Herb-lord, of my wound this day."
And so with silver of an imbas moon, Diancecht restored as live the Holy Hand, and Nuada left the scepter for Druid's staff, and taught threefold light throughout the land.
