White Lady Of Moher
By La Belle Rouge

on the steep cliffs of misted Moher
she waited for her true lover where
an Irish seaman watched off shore
every time he sailed past there

her hair caught fire in the sunset
sea-wind whipped her dress of white
the Irish captain could not forget
for she haunted his dreams at night

he waved to her oft when sailing by
but she never returned his greeting
was she snobbish or was she just shy?
he hoped someday they’d be meeting

he watched her in the full moonlight
one night as he walked the cold shore
to join her on the cliffs, he might
for the lady he had grown to adore

her absent lover had never appeared
so to gain her love the Captain swore
he’d join her on the cliffs with no fear
for he must know the fair lady more

into mist he climbed, his soul all a-storm
he hurried into darkness to be at her side
if her heart was as beautiful as her form
he would make the White Lady his bride

there she was just a few feet ahead
perched on lofty edge of the cliffs
before even one word could be said
her lovely head she slowly lifts

flamed hair, burgundy in moonlight,
falls around her bare shoulders fair
The Captain thought all would be alright
and The Lady would welcome him there

But when he looked into her eyes
they shone a eerie unnatural green
which took the Captain by surprise,
this secret he wished he hadn’t seen

As he watched she vanished away
into the cold shimmering mists
being left alone he did not stay
unbelieving of such a ghostly twist

If by steep cliffs of misted Moher
you observe at sunset or midnight
Lady with hair of flame from the shore
or windswept white dress in moonlight

Do not travel to misty cliffs’ peak
to start a conversation is not wise
better not to draw close or speak
and do not look into the Lady’s eyes

Music "The Cliffs Of Moher"

The Devil's afoot on those misty cliffs by the shore. Better beware for your in it for sure. A lovely poem about how deceptive the mist by the seashore can be.
