Ray Charles and Goddess Dana.

No breast of medals
No flouncy cockade
Gives one permission
To hog the parade
As one we are mighty
Apart we will fall
Oarsmen in tandem
Are smoothest of all
Show no disrespect
No fear or no scorn
Look straight ahead
And you’ll feel reborn
The blackthorn it blossoms
In thickets and rows
I foresee a harvest
Of wondrous sloes
Sun drenched long evenings
You’ve come back once more
To glow on our shadows
Through every half door
That lucky old sun
Aint got nothing to do
He aint got no master
He aint got no crew
So sing hallelujah
Give praise and stand tall
The river’s before us
Clear of the falls
Sweet Goddess Dana
Please shine down a light
On Erin’s green valleys
To rid us of blight
I gaze at the bird bath
They frolic and play
With frenzied ablutions
Same time everyday
The fairies are meeting
At sweet Dunamaise
A magic convention
All subjects they’ll raise
The dolphins look tiny
From mighty Sliabh League
Pods swimming in circles
Small hoops of intrigue.

Thanks for tuning in…..!
