A Charm of Skye
The harp has three strings,
What a pleasant jewel it was.
A string of iron,
A string of bronze,
A string of pure silver.
The names of the strings were thus:
Suantorrgles; Geantorrgles the great;
Goitorrgles was the other string
Which could send all men a weeping.
If the pure Goitorrgles be played
For the hosts of the earth
They would all get laughter from it
From one day to the next.
If the free Suantorrgles were played
To the host of the wide universe-
Great the wonder-
All would fall asleep.
