Equinox greetings to one and all.

Thought the following had the right feel to it for the day. Image of Amairgen himself at -

Song of Amairgen

I am a wind upon the sea
I am a sea-wave on the land
I am the sound of breaking waves
Encompassing all that I see.

Erin is my lady love
Erin is my heart of gold
Erin is all my joy
And who but my lady Erin?

I am a stag of seven tines
I am a hawk upon a cliff
I am a tear-drop of the sun
Encompassing all that I see.

Fairer than I there is no plant,
I am a battle-hardened boar,
I am a salmon in a pool,
Encompassing all that I see.

A silver lake set in a plain,
The excellence of all the arts,
A battle-waging spear am I
Encompassing all that I see.

Amairgen Glungel son of Mil,
A god who sets the head afire,
The secret of the mountain stones,
Encompassing all that I see.

I invoke the ages of the moon,
And steer the course of the setting sun
Bearing cattle from Tethra's house,
Encompassing all that I see.

The sea is bursting forth of fish,
The skies are full with flights of birds,
Manannan's cattle under wave,
And the land is broad of beasts.
