Deirdre’s Accordion

Deidre played till her fingers throbbed
to keep the unrelenting fae
and folk from Tír na nÓg at bay,
even the leprechauns who robbed
and buried rainbow gold. Of course,
she kept her sister entertained
with songs as they toiled on the moors.

She loved the golden changeling child
swapped by the unrelenting fae,
protected her by night and day,
loved her, despite her increasing wild
fantasies. Blaithin was her little flower,
she had to keep her entertained
for fear she would leave in the magic hour.

No matter how closely she watched the girl
born of the darkly magical fae,
one day, as feared, they lured her away
to play in their eternal world.
But Deirdre followed her little sister
to kept her forever entertained -
not even the fairies could resist her.
