Lughnasa Damhsa

Composed by Eithne Ní Uallacháin, ‘on seeing Brian Friel’s Dancing at Lughnasa and connecting to the psyche of Winter (19/04/1996).’

Winter advancing, harvest gathering – Lughnasa dancing
Dancing in circles, dance with your darling – Lughnasa dancing
Dance to the river, cross the Blackwater – Lughnasa dancing
Enter the darkness, sleep with your shadow – Lughnasa dancing
Down in the deep earth, there where the soul dreams – Lughnasa dancing
Sleeping and gathering all the strength that I need – Lughnasa dancing
Wake in a green world, seeing with blue eyes – Lughnasa dancing
Winter advancing, harvest gathering – Lughnasa dancing
