    The plight of Irish immigrant during the potato famine of the 19th- that's the reason why so many Irish immigrants came to the United States.Our Lady Liberty the statue in the harbor welcomes all to this country..My parents emigrated from France after WW2 was over and i born here.Almost all of us are immigrants or descendents of people who came to start a life in a new land to escape persecution of various degrees..This world is getting smaller or so it seems and we to learn to co-exist in harmony.. good poemm.I know the poet is long gone but may we always respect our heritage and honor the spirit within Humanity.

    I find the flow and meter very well placed. The constant rhyme makes this quite an enjoyable read. This is my first encounter with Mr. Kickham and I'm certain there will be many more to come. He falls well within the style of my favorite poets who are all 19th century bards.... (Report) Reply

    Fantastic tribute written by words. The peasant girl...if not any historical character... has been uploaded as the part of history. If there any clue with the Irish history which we don't know, yet feel it high. In first case, as a common character, poet creates an epic and for the last guessing poet flags as a true citizen. Beautiful writing which should be considered as classic...................................Pranab k c (Report) Reply
