Caer[edit]

On November 1, Caer and the other girls would turn into a swan for one year.

What does this mean? This is very unclear phrasing. Also, when you follow the link to Caer, it has a very unclear artical that seems better suited to a disambiguation page and that has less information than the sentence(s) on Caer in this artical. --Akako| 19:25, 15 October 2005 (UTC)

Poetic inspiration/poems?[edit]

I was going to add a section on the poems and works that have notable content that are based/inspired by Aengus in mythology. By that I mean such as William Butler Yeats's poem entitled "The Song of Wandering Aengus" which deals with the god as representing youthful love, beauty, and the search that lasts a long time for love itself. The problem I am having is not just one problem, but several. I can not seem to find any other basis for the idea that he inspired many poems than this one poem. Yet many sources portray him as a poetic inspiration god. Any ideas? Or even any other examples to help out on this issue? --Melune (talk) 20:14, 22 September 2008 (UTC)

He shows up in Stephens' The Crock of Gold. I have included this in the article. Larry Koenigsberg (talk) 22:24, 17 May 2012 (UTC)

Aengus Life-Death-Life diety?[edit]

I read in the works of Irish and Scottish writers in the first decade of twentieth century (William Sharp and Alasdair MacCaba) that there are tales of Aengus sleeping during the winter and awakening in spring. If true then Aengus is an Irish Tammuz?
