Treasure Island

A long Way From Here To The Old Paps Of Shrone

A long way from here to the old Paps of Shrone
And from Gortavehy and his face of stone
And a long way from here ten thousand miles or more
From the fields and the cliffs of Hibernia's shore.

A long way from here to where the rivers do meet
In the fields of Duhallow near the Town of Millstreet
And a long way from Cullen and Knocknagree,
Rathmore, Boherbue, Kiskeam and Derrinagree.

A long way from here to where the Blackwater flow
Through the countryside of the rook and the gray hooded crow
And a long way from here to the clear mountain rill
That flows down the high fields by old Clara hill.

Far from Kanturk, Newmarket, Dromtarriffe and Banteer
In the heart of Duhallow a long way from here
In distance in miles they may be far away
But in fancy I visit these places today.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
