Poem describing famine on Rathlin Island'


In empty fields and withered walls
I feel the present past,
Of sailing ships who sped away
The young, the old, the first, the last
The seas, the tides which swept the lands,
 To new born nations waiting
The hungry masses rushing on,
The pain of emigration
The broken lives, the emptied land,
The crops which failed and died
The hungry mouths, the saddened eyes,
The empty beds where children cried
On darkened nights and whispering winds
I hear the songs they sang
The lingering echoes in empty ruins,
Where joyous voices rang

it seems paradoxical...the last line is the only one giving all the hope in life...and life in hope.

Reviewed by Ronald Hull 5/17/2012
Those were very trying times with families ripped apart and all the dying. Today, they are so much stronger for it. Beautifully written with great passion.

Strong and heart wrenching...
