Thomas Caulfield Irwin


He should be one worthy of literary note
Yet he has become a near forgotten poet
One of those who deserve a greater renown
Thomas Caulfield Irwin from Warrenpoint County Down
As a sonneteer his sonnets are supreme
Yet he is one not held in high esteem
Of language he had such a great command
And his poems are never hard to understand
Yet in death his legend never seemed to grow
He is the poet that not many of seem to know
He is not in the literary hall of fame
And few have even heard of him by name
But he is one we ought to celebrate
Since as a poet he surely is a great.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
