Cliffs of Clare # Zizi Jarmaire

A true scribe of Aran
One Breandán Ó’ hEithir
The view from his cradle
The stark cliffs of Clare
To drift on a clear morn
When tide is at neap
Passing the caves
Where the young mermaids sleep
Or lie in the long grass
Midst corn crake and thrush
Watching the waves
Roll in to Portrush
Perseverance Rover
Is zooming for Mars
A comet-like blimp
Off to the stars
Our best are departing
There’s lots of despair
They join in the dance
With Zizi Jarmaire
Saving the hay
And visions of Saturn
Salad for tea
On grand willow pattern
There’s changes afoot
Wait till you see
With Kim Karadash
Growing spuds near Kilkee.

Until next time…Sláinte.
