I must visit Ireland
Its call pervades my brain
Flooding me with feelings
Of aching love and pain

I shall gaze upon its lush lands
Entranced within its spell
Engrossed in tales of "wee folk"
And those of "Banshee wails"

I'll bring to mind its famine
Where many folk did die
I'll linger and I'll ponder
Tragedies of life . . . and why?

Visit, I must, to Ireland
To that land of emerald green
Paying tribute to those departed
And a country's future dream

You pen well the longing of many of us. There's a bit of Irish in all, if only after reading this delightful yearning to see the Green Island and its people. Thank you. - Bill

I wanna go!!!!!!!!!! Never have been there, but your outstanding imagery brings Ireland vividly to life. Beautifully written.

My parents went there right after 9/11, they say the people are the friendliest on Earth.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

These gorgeous lines on IRELAND gives one a moving sense of being there already. They are truly beautiful in their acknowledgement of the history of the country, its culture, and its people's dynamic collective soul.

Happy St Patrick's Day to you ....
Poignant remembrance to the million people who starved to death in Ireland in 1840...

I knew a very nice lady named Gwen years ago in the little country church where my son was Baptised. She and her husband had a young son and a daughter and were so nice and sincere that I asked them to be my son's godparents at the time. The little church was struck by lightning years later and burned to the ground. Gwen is a nice name.

And a grand poem you have written for St. Patrick's Day Gwen. It's only because there is so much rain in Ireland that it has grass as green as you'll ever see anywhere. Happy St. Patrick's Day to you my dear.
