No 8 Leitrim Sonnet

Oh Leitrim my love with snippet of sea
Where Yeats’ Glencar fills pools of romance
Sheebeg and Sheemore a wonder to see
And Lough Allen’s slopes where old fairies dance
Stone Coracloona the late prince’s grave
Foxgloves at morning at sweet Dromahair
Birdsong at twilight laments Fionn the brave
At Carrick on Shannon warmth fills the air
Such heavenly views surround Eagle Rock
One sculpted with care by hands from above
Great canal journeys and treats at each lock
Then off to sheer bliss with one little shove
Dromod so grand and Mohill just fancy
Melvin sky blue the home of MacClancy.
