What is a Sleepy Maggie?

Second Kingdom was a wonderful section of DreamScape, where I lived in a beautiful tree house and met many wonderful people. I'm not part of SK anymore, but I still keep in touch with many of the true friends I made there.

  • This is what I looked like in Second Kingsom!

    Before DreamScape, there was IRC, and my name was DarkRose there. I don't think any of the friends I had on #RoseWood were also in Second Kingdom, but you never know!

    • RoseWood is the site I made 'way back then about that IRC channel. It looks a little (OK a lot) old-fashioned, but I kinda want to keep it that way.
    • When I moved to Facebook, I kept the name Sleepy Maggie so my old SK friends could find me. Everyone always asks me why I chose that as my name! So here's the background to that:

      Are ye Sleepin' Maggie? is a traditional Scottish Folk Song. Here is a little .wav file of the melody!

      Mirk and rainy is the nicht,
      There's no' a staum in a' the carry
      Lichtnin's gleam athwart the lift,
      And cauld winds drive wi' winters fury.

      |: Oh, are ye sleeping Maggie :|
      Let me in, for loud the linn is howling
      Ower the warlock Craigie.

      Fearfu' soughs the boortree bank,
      The rifted wood roars wild and dreary
      Loud the iron yett does clank,
      The cry of howlits mak's me eerie.


      Abune ma breath, I daurnae speak,
      For fear I rouse your waukrife Daddy
      Cauld's the blast upon my cheek,
      O rise, O rise my bonnie lady.


      She's ope'd the door, she's let him in,
      She's cuist aside his dreepin plaidie
      Blaw yer warst ye rain and wind,
      For Maggie noo I'm an aside ye.

      Alt. Chorus:
      |: Noo since your waukin' Maggie, :|
      What care I for howlits cry,
      For boortree bank or warlock Craigie.
