Your feathers wing my song

The "tuion" or "singing robe" (of the Irish bard) may have been stolen from an otherworld woman who spends alternating years as a bird. In "The Dream of Oengus," a man betroths a selkie (seal-woman), an while he is in possession of the (human) robe she is in his power.

-- Anne Rosse, Pagan Celtic Britain
