Blessed are those who are born of this land

Happy are those who can hold fast its hand

Who can pull up a chair

And bid goodbye to care

We won't ask what you're thinking

When we ask what you're drinking


Lucky are those who share this old bond

Eager are they who come from beyond

To this land full of history

Magic and mystery

We won't ask why you smile

Or why you stop here a while


But we understand why you''ll always come back

To find a warm welcome and the fun of the craic

No matter where you go

Or how far you roam

You're never far from Ireland

You're never far from MY land

Our forever island home

Thanks, KJ. I'm currently completing a sea-shanty style version of
my previously published poem "Down By The Mewstone" which I
will try to upload here in the near future.

Great fun. You really should do more like this. I've never been to Ireland, but now I'm wanting to give it a visit.
Cheers Kevin

Gents (you know who you are) - thanks for the "likes". This was fun
to compose, helped by an old Irish family connection.
