Misty dark forest with only the stars above
she calls out to only you; but knows not your name

I cried. I laughed (smiled anyhow...). And then, cried!!!

Well a banshee is basically a fairy woman that, in Scottish folklore, wails out for those who are about to die. (Hence the wailing/cryi n g ) . She is looked at often in pictures washing the bloodstained armor of those who will soon fall.

I know this isn't very important but I thought I'd tell all that are curious.

Is this the song that often plays in the back ground of the Doctor Who companion Rose Tyler?

Wow. Caught my attention, that's for sure. Beautiful.

What a treat to listen to such beauties! Like sirens of the pit of my stomach. Such a sleep I was slumped to.❤️

While it literally translates to Faery Woman, the bean sidhe is a Celtic spirit woman whose wail calls the death of a Celt/Irish. Some stories are slightly different, instead saying that she fortells the death of the one who hears her. I heard one fifteen years ago when my great-grandm o t h e r Mary Ellen "May" (Mahoney) Hurley died.

I seriously thought this was Loreena McKennitt. That's not a bad thing, just surprising because she has such a distinctive voice I wouldn't expect to confuse someone else with her!
