Story/Poem About a Town in Ireland
Green Fields of Adare
Went for a stroll in December,
an Irish village, called "Adare"
Fog and the mist soon descended,
Round a corner, hooves led me there
What came to my field of vision?
But first in my ears I did hear
A pen full of bovines mooing,
strange light to behold did appear!
My camera, I grasped quite steady,
as they posed in that field divine;
Picture of memory so vivid;
Take me back to that place and time!
Linger on through evening repast;
Celtic music rang through the hall;
A pub full of lonely travelers;
The songs followed winter to fall
Grazing heart calls out for Ireland;
Sing of lush fields of emerald green -
Love follows legendary paths;
Magnificent sights to be seen!
