An Irish Walk

You could find them
If they were there,
Beneath the lip of the quay
Or amongst some moss
That’s found a footing in the stone,
Or in the damp crevices
Where mortar was.
The Truths, I mean.
The Reasons.
Some Assurance.
Even so,
There’s a fine spring chill
Carried on the breeze,
And the muted cheer
Of morning gray,
And voices
Lilting over the water
And down the lanes.
​And that’s enough for now.


I’ve retired after a career teaching law. I divide my time now between Athens, Georgia, in the States and the south coast of Ireland.
