Complete is my chair in Caer Sidi,
No one will be afflicted with disease or old age that may be in it.
It is known to Manawyd and Pryderi.
Three utterances, around the fire, will he sing before it,
And around its borders are the streams of the ocean.
And the fruitful fountain is above it,
Is sweeter than white wine the liquor therein.
-From The Book of Taliesin Poem 14 "Song Before the Sons of Llyr" by Taliesin as translated by William F. Skene




What is Caer Sidydd?

Better known as Caer Sidi, it is a Faerie fortress of the Celtic Otherworld where the souls of dead poets go to be reborn. Caer Sidi translates as the rotating fortress, and as such is thought to be a metaphor for the zodiac, which appears to rotate around the Earth throughout the year. It is because of this that the name Caer Sidydd is thought to be an acceptable alternate as it translates to Fortress of the Zodiac.
