No.2 Offaly Sonnet

The twittering dunnock of Boora Bog
Heralds the day as joys recommence
Offaly’s heroes sail through the fog
Lord let me see this ten thousand years hence
Oh beautiful Birr and heathered Slieve Blooms
And Geashill’s soft fields where skippeth the hare
Grand Canal daffodils join in great plume
Clonmacnoise watching this Gaelic affair
Yet when a great hunger fell on this land
As Faithful kin passed to heaven above
Kinnitty sighed as they left on command
And waters of silver sprayed them with love
Halcyon days at bold Edenderry
Banagher sweet by Shannon so merry.
