Here they are for what they are worth. And, yes, there are more to follow!
A green room in a farmhouse Bed & Breakfast -
a room with a wire hanger on a nail on a wall
to hang my coat on, and a musty oriental
sheet on the sagged bed; and many pillows.
An old cobweb hangs in the dusty drinking glass
on the bedside table and a dead crane fly hangs
from the ceiling. I lie on the bed and think -
I think of Larkin's Mr Bleaney and how near we are
to where the ocean breaks on the beach.
A STRANGER'S THOUGHT IN PORTMAGEE?°
the universities are stuffed
with politically correct academics -
what else can you expect from a people
with no moral radar
but shibboleths of cosy liberal consensus
and moral laxity
THE GREEN PATH
over slatey stones
and springy bright green turf
and silver dolphins
in the sunny seaweed
scented breeze and rain-
ON BALLINSKELLIGS BEACH
SOME QUOTES OF THE DAY
"If I didn't have my own house I'd be really banjaxed"
"I hope the sun shines for you"
"Only the real Irish come from County Clare"
"I'll see you tomorrow with God's help"
