I am going to write a chapter for each of the members of An Soilsiu (read Hidden in Plain Sight if you don't know what I'm talking about). This is their musings on how the songs they sing relate to what is happening to them.

Disclaimer: I do not own Fablehaven. Brandon Mull does. I also do not own the lyrics here- they are from Riverdance.


Chapter One: Merwenna on The Heart's Cry

Where the river foams and surges to the sea
Silver figures rise to find me
Wise and as daring, following the heart's cry
I am that deep pool, I am that dark spring
Warm with a mystery I may reveal to you

I'm no naiad, but if I was, those lines would be perfect for me. My love knows I'm a mystery- all fallen nymphs are to true humans. I'm more of a mystery then most, a mystery that he sees as a challenge.

In time
Time holds the heart's key
Key to everything is love
Love makes the heart flower
Flower into a deep desire
Passion in the heart's fire
Passion and desire

Time, is it? Time holding the heart's key. I hope that's true. Love does make the heart flower into a deep desire.

See the eagle rise above the open plain
Golden in the morning air
Weaving and soaring, watchful and protecting
I am your shelter, I will enfold you
Warm with a mystery I may reveal to you

My love is the eagle, flying high, unaware of fate's plan for him. I only know danger is in store for one as brave as him. Will he find shelter during the coming storm?

In time
Time holds the heart's key
Key to everything is love
Love makes the heart flower
Flower into a deep desire
Passion in the heart's fire
Passion and desire

He already has the key to my heart. I have the key to his. The words my sisters and I sing are true, for me most of all.
