SpaceX and Listowel Writers.

SpaceX is launching
For Heaven this day
Two stout pioneers
God’s speed on your way
Listowel has fallen
All writers must wait
For paradise lost
John B. at the gate
A boulder-like stone
By castle and keep
Oh Shannon’s clear waters
Where wild salmon leap
Dun Aengus is bearing
Her chest to the sea
Whilst folks walk the boreens
Barefooted and free
A marbleous city
In Leinster’s soft cot
Bewildering hurlers
Each boy girl and tot
Bagenalstown echoes
With chaffinch and sparrow
Brown trout are rising
For flies on the Barrow
Two meters remains
The rule on the chart
Together we stay
By keeping apart
Foxgloves converge
In hedgerows and bars
Wee bells on stalks
Reaching for Mars
The Blaskets are dreamy
The sun is their clock
While beehives sit cozy
And safe on the rock.

I’ll be off…!
