Yeats and No Second Troy. Blog.

W.B Yeats and No Second Troy. Blog.

I met Christy Brady
The script he did print
Our fine proclamation
Still glued to the plinth
If they only knew then
What Ireland knows now
Would their dreams be in tatters
Would they lay down the plough
I wore the green shamrock
The black eagle with pride
The bold harp of Leinster
With passion inside
Lets all pull together
And go to the forge
We’ll strike the steel anvil
In victory we’ll gorge
Frederick Douglas
They did liberate
A friend of O’Connell
He fought strife and hate
Sheebeg Sheemore
O’Carolan’s sweet song
A real Second Troy?
To Leitrim belongs
Nails of strong keratin
Plucking the strings
Wonderful planxties
Fit for a king
Sport has been cancelled
No puck from the hurl
No snip from the barber
Heads full of curls
If I were a mariner
I’d seek the blue seas
I’d swim in lagoons
And dry off in the breeze
On warm starry nights
I would follow the whales
And thank God above
For the wind in my sails.

Oops the wind is up..bye for now!
