February for Manannan – 19 A Sonnet

Sonnet: Prayer to Manannan

by Bard Oskan

God of the sea, your truth in laughter rings
the sage’s staff and triton held upraised
your clever guises humbled hearts of kings
and from the meek inspired resounding praise

resplendent crane of princely scarlet brow
together with your steeds accomplice make
lifegiving flesh of salmon and of sow
are gracious yours to give and ours to take

lend strength to me, great father of the sea
a wiser soul and kinder I shall be
