On A Telephone Conversation With James Sullivan


A telephone conversation with James Sullivan in old Claraghatlea
Even as the crow does fly from here far away
And i garnered from the conversation which did not last long
That the Irish economy is still going strong,
He said around Millstreet real estate to buy not cheap
From house sales the real estate agents their fortunes do reap
For a new home there hundreds of thousands of euros you'd pay
The changes keep happening in the Ireland of today,
Just talking to him seemed as if time had stood still
Back there in the shadows of old Clara hill
Though since i last spoke to James two decades have gone
And time does not wait it just keeps ticking on
His mum Hanna and his sister Marie and family he said were okay
And great news to report of in a Land far away.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
