In writing my novel DRAGONS IN THE SKY because it is a Celtic tale I'm using some bardic verse in place of regular chapter segments which I call 'stanzas' . Here's an example of one:
SONG FOR A SWORDS WOMAN
Who is she who comes riding,
Wearing ermine skins and hawk feathers
in her thick tresses?
Who is she who rides through the sedge,
A graceful huntress queen?
Sure-footed is her pony
Sharp-pointed is her spear
Leaf-shaped are her arrow-heads
Her bow is supple, made from a yew bough.
She rides, stately and proud
A wild-eyed warrior queen.
Who is she who comes riding
On the spirited chestnut mare?
Who is this bronze-cheeked swords woman
With hawk feathers in her hair?
