My Inspiration

My Inspiration As A Poet

by Charles E S Fairey

When the Birds Of Rhiannon sing

Another world they do bring,

Caer Sidi is where I travel

Where starry wisdom I unravel.

A netherworld tower

Where I stay hour after hour,

At the top of the World Tree

Where everything I can see.

When it is the end of my inspiration

I feel a falling sensation,

And see the three blackbirds

Who sing out heavenly words.

When I'm back in earth time

I document my knowledge in rhyme,

Waiting for another reader

To become a mystical hearer.
