This Deirdre is not the same Deirdre as the Queen of the Winter Rose. She is of the Irish Legend- A Celtic Tale of the Sons of Usnach. It is a sad tale of a woman cursed with unmatchable beauty who is doomed to marry the King because of it. However she falls in love with a Hunter and he and his brothers, the sons of Usnach run from their home in Ireland and go to Scotland. For years the King tries to find them until he decides it is time to bring them back so he could have the beautiful woman for his own. Through tricks and schemes Deirdre and the men come back and the King kills her love and his brothers. She in the end dies of a broken heart.   In skies of frozen snow Where winds of sadness roam Red suns burning low   You were my home where I would go   In green fields now unknown Your name upon a standing stone Love invites one last call When death from life begins to fall   The streams no longer go To tides of distant seas Love wont grow old Without memories   Your arms my home where I would sleep   In green fields now unknown Your name upon a standing stone Love invites one last call When death from life begins to fall   And my tears now unfold How can I now alone grow old? Dusting stars shed their lights When death from life slips silently through the night….    The Danna Brothers- A Celtic Tale The Legend of Deirdre- Lament
