Thread Name: Tree songs? esp. Celtic?
Subject: RE: Tree songs? esp. Celtic?
The lament for Cill Cais (translated, it starts: "What shall we do now for timber, the last of the woods is down...") reminds me of another song in Irish, An Droigne n Donn - The Hawthorn Tree - in which a boy is addressed as a hawthorn.
