A random add to my blog i know but i have dabbled a bit in the world of poetics and you can find some of my work here!
Below is my favorite and signature poem, hope you enjoy!
Growing up in Donegal
Mountains, hills, fields and the wild
Oh how wonderful to be a child
To run around outside and play
And enjoy each sun filled day.
Unfortunately it does not last
The grey clouds cover, the sun has passed
A sea of worry, a field of doubt
Cast shadows on the world about.
The time for play and fun is over
The sun has gone, we are much older
But in growing up we may
Learn to appreciate each day
So as we continue on life’s track
We should not let storms set us back
We should brave all the wind and hail
And keep trying when we fail
For as seasons change and life goes on
We will see that the clouds have gone.
