Ruth Morrissey # Amy Winehouse RIP.
(Late July)

Bright star of her county
Young Rosie Mc Cann
Near beautiful Banbridge
By the banks of the Bann
Clouds over Munster
This very sad day
Ruth has departed
And gone on her way
Government members
Arrive at the gate
With wreaths and fresh flowers
It’s really too late
‘Tis well I remember
Those halcyon days
Smelling the heather
On Sliabh Gallion Braes
And down by the Liffey
By Leixlip’s white falls
Silver ones leaping
Their birthplace still calls
To break the fresh cover
Of dewdrops at dawn
Glistening fields
Around Classiebawn
The songbird from London
Nine years gone today
Young Amy Winehouse
A blinding bright ray.

Slán for now..Sláinte!
