Plog …. ( Poetry blog)

# Luke # Juliette Greco

Luke would be eighty
This dank winter’s day
Our great balladeer
A star through the grey
A Jewel on the lake
By lovely Portnoo
Dawn at Doon Fort
And pale blue on blue
Blood on the grass
Ten decades ago
The ghosts of Croke Park
Where Royal Canal flows
Hundreds and thousands
Went digging for gold
Some stayed at home
For peace to unfold
Hippies and hash
And venial sin
Little brown books
Thrown in the bin
The pale moon did rise
Above the green hill
Dublin for six ?
All’s quiet in Gills
The sultriest tones
Of Juliette Greco
Gals in the Shelbourne
Sipping Prosecco.

Beidh mé ar ais…Sláinte!
