A Land Full of Magic – a Poem for Ireland

A Land Full of Magic – a Poem for Ireland

A Land Full of Magic

Myth and legend
Folklore and fables
So full of mystery
Time weaves it’s tales

Passed down from generation
Each one carrying to the next
This land full of magic
Let no one forget

The fairies of the Causeway
The Children turn to Swans
Benandonner and Finn McColl
Forever let them live on

Full of heart and soul
Listen now and relish
Dalriada, Glenara guide you
With their anecdote embellish

Though we move on now
We know their legends here will last
Keep traditions a-flowing
Their future anchored in the past

    I love that last line Vicky, in fact the whole last verse. Very clever and really conjures up the folklore of Ireland! Thanks for hosting #prose4t

    Brilliant memories evoked
    Of cold Guiness
    Listening to folk bands
    And pies with mash

    Fab, especially loved ‘a-flowing’, such a great movement to it. I also love your picture. I’m embarrassed to say that despite living a mere ferry ride away I’ve still never been to Ireland. I shall have to rectify that soon!

    I loved this. I loved all the references which sounded magical and I loved the way the poem flowed, it sounded full of mystery and there was really a sense of somewhere special in your verses. I hope you had a wonderful holiday too – sounds an amazing place. x #Prose4T
