bilby commented on the word ellan vannin
Manx name for the Isle of Man.
It's also a poem, among other things recorded by the Bee Gees.
Then I hear the wavelets murmur
As they kiss the fairy shore,
Then beneath the em'rald waters
Sings the mermaid as of yore,
And the fair Isle shines with beauty
As in youth it dawned on me,
My own dear Ellan Vannin
With its green hills by the sea.
