I always forget about the electric guitar part in here, so I'm like, "What in the weird?"

huh.. weird. I actually think I could like this. reminds me of the elves of rivendale. probably the first time I felt when my dad read me the hobbit as a little girl. Makes me think of the part where Bilbo and company first enter Rivendale. (In the book, for all you weird people who like the horrid movies)

By the way,I love the electric guitar!

Was this a poem she made a song out of? Or did she write it herself?

Everything about this song is perfect. I only wish she didn't skip the fourth stanza in the poem which begins Where the wandering water gushes..

Yes, this song is worth a short meditation!

The electric guitar sits very well in this song. Expand your horizons a bit ..

My goodness, is that an electric guitar in a Loreena McKennitt song? I love it! It wouldn't suit all of her music, but it's gorgeous here.

The rendition of this Yeats poem by The Waterboys is the best version.

I recommend also, "Stolen Child", by Keith Donohue. Like the song Loreena sings,
it's based on the poem of the same title, by William Butler Yeats. Mysterious and haunting.

An amazingly beautiful song made even better with a guitar interlude. I'm not sure how this makes it a rock song, as the previous poster implies.
