Between the land and the green sea.

This piece is from early 2013 and is in praise of my beautiful home which is a tiny village in North Co Dublin. I live between sea and land and am blessed to have room to move and for my kids to grow.

 

Between the land and the green sea.

Between the land and the green sea

I was born and I have lived

Betwixt soil and salt I have grown

It shaped and formed the man I am

 

I am of the sand and soil

A creature of the coastal tide

I am blood and bone of yielding clay

And self and soul of foaming brine.

 

I will age and life will ebb

And not regret the passing time

I will praise sun and rain

and adore the wind that beats me down

 

I will die where I have stood

Be glad that life has been

Within rich earth and crashing wave

That I will rest between..
