She came upon a meadow, then she undressed; And when she was naked, the meadow blushed.
Softly she tread, floating above the clover Seas. Suddenly lost, bold honey bees forgot The scent of flowers blooming. Iridescent wings, Humming birds, monarchs, dragons, flying in Procession and the mushrooming dew now rising Began to swell, raining upwards into the mystic Blue heavens and the trees beyond that clearing Stood longingly amazed, so green their spying Gaze, when all the myriad flowers loosely fell And all the gathering of colours faintly dimmed.
She came upon a meadow, then she undressed; And when she was naked, the meadow blushed. .
To my ears her gift . . . Sound of ocean in seashells, . . . Whispered she loves me.
Selkies (also spelled silkies, selchies; Irish/Scottish Gaelic: selchidh, Scots: selkie fowk) are mythological creatures found in Scottish, Irish, and Faroese folklore. Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend is apparently most common in Orkney and Shetland and is very similar to those of swan maidens.
Female selkies are said to make excellent wives, but because their true home is the sea, they will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean. Sometimes, a selkie maiden is taken as a wife by a human man and she has several children by him.
