Bally’s Tale: Treasure of Tara…

*

…Many years later, in the reign of Art-mac-Conn, at the festival of Samhuin,

the Master Poets came to the feast, as was their custom,

and they brought their tablets of poetry with them…

*

When king Art saw the tablets of Yew and Apple

he asked for them and they were brought to him.

*

The king was holding the tablets in each hand,

face to face, admiring their craftsmanship,

when the two sprang together and would not from that time on be separated.

*

Like woodbine around a twig were they and so they were preserved

with all the other wondrous jewels in the Treasury of Tara…
