Let me reassure you, it is only an acquaintance with this poignant tune
in one version that I could sit there, eyes closed in pleasure, and listen
while Eogan did favor us with this beautiful song. The very first time I
heard the piece, however, I was hard-pressed to see straight myself--and I was
driving eight horses down a particularly crowded portion of His Majesty's
Highway at the time .... :-0 It took a long while to get over it, and
depending on my mood, Meli can be reduced to drizzle in an eye's twinkle! <g>

Oh, it is a lovely song, is it not? Maybe at the next event where we all find
ourselves together, we might prevail upon Eogan to sing once more?
