Just because [livejournal.com profile] simara and I happened to be talking about it the other day I ended up searching out the lyrics to 'The Stolen Child' by W.B Yeats.

To save people's flists... )

Thing is I'm sure I remember a poem based on the Wild Hunt, it goes in cycles of the Huntsman calling a child, the Child telling his father what is happening and the Father coming up with some rational explanation for it. Eventually the Child goes with the Huntsman and his Father is left with only a corpse. Something tells me that the child was ill and the reason he and his father were out was that they were going to the house of the doctor. It's one of those things that is sitting in the back of my mind and I think I may have discovered through it being mentioned in a book somewhere. I can't however remember the title or the name of the author. I have tried Googling it but with not much to go on I've turned up a blank. Anyone out there have any ideas?
