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…
