I have always been a fan of the great poets like Yeats ect. Over the years I have meticulously sifted through all of them in order to find the ones I like best. The ones I want to and have to read again and again. The ones that pack the hardest punch and bleed all over the pages - the classics. Modern poetry has always left me feeling a little bit hollow and not quite satisfied. Most lacking that one thing I can not quite put my finger on.

Enter "The Lay..." What a beautiful piece of poetry heav

Lay of Gilthol & Kirõral is a collection of poems about the world of Fae.

I don’t usually read poems but I enjoyed these poems for the descriptive world that Hendrickson portrayed and with the theme of tragic lovers and forbidden love throughout it gave a sense of Romeo and Juliet, fae style.

There is very little poetry that appeals to me anymore. I like my old-style poems and prose, and haven't really found anything modern that's done for me what the old ones have.

Until now.

I will need to re-read this a couple more times because I'm sure I missed lots. I was really just swept away with the beauty of the language and the skill that went into this.
