No18 Fermanagh Sonnet

Celestial Erne a paradise pure

Soft lapping waters my pulse and my joy

With milk shades at twilight, lovers to lure

Dear Enniskillen with angels you toy

Diamond-like dews on Cuilcagh so whinny

As scintillant swans festoon the canal

Wren of Belcoo both giant and mini

Fermanagh of lakes and blooms for La Salle

God’s harpers at play at old Florence Court

Whilst bluebells still chime in yon Cladagh glen

How Slieve Beagh spring lambs rejoice and cavort

One kiss for Beleek when we meet again

Blue moon of my soul o’er grand Marble Arch

Old friends of the dawn to heaven they march.

Tom Clancy.
