Maigh Eo Nocturne

I gaze deep into the cold Maigh Eo night.
As long, lonely shafts of light
Search the darkened sky.
Searing 'cross rooftops, treetops
and low clouds seeded by turf-fires.

And for what?
A reason? Why?

When we've this symphony of stars,
In residence
Above us, all our nights and days.
