Haunted by a melody

Postby hywel_dda » Mon Mar 17, 2014 7:38 am

I want to express a positive musical experience. Plagio and poeni are suggested translations for haunting which really don't work in this context. Can anyone please suggest any other alternatives?

Yes I hear it!... Hiraeth - the link with the long-forgotten past, the language of the soul, the call from the inner self. Half forgotten - fraction remembered. It speaks from the rocks, from the earth, from the trees and in the waves. It's always there.
