Giant’s Causeway and Poet De Vere.

Swallows arrive
From far away lands
Home for the summer
in Legion-like bands
The Curlews look over
A wondrous Lough Arrow
Filling my bones
With joy to the marrow
The Green Glens of Antrim
Where leverets hide
And Fionn’s mighty steps
Are lashed by the tide
Tir Chonaill is sanguine
And lovely Gweedore
Is flaunting sweet music
As royal ones soar
Drays as a team
Stretch sinew and tendon
Wicklow is rife
With pink rhododendrons
A lark in the morning
Sings by the Foyle
Well spoken bards
Read ‘Silent, O Moyle’
Rain softly falls
On brave Enniskillen
I think of such poets
As Ledwidge and Dylan
The Bridge of Athlone
And men without fear
Where cold rushing waters
Inspired De Vere
Mahon’s white falls
And lone Lackendara
Resembling things
In wild Connemara.

See you soon …!
