    My mother used to talk about my uncle Padraic and his friendship with James Joyce. I grew up believing he was a great writer and have had no reason to change my view now I am older.

    The great Irish poet Padraic Fiacc dedicated a poem to Colm. It was called 'GOODBYE TO COLUM'. Fiacc knew Colm and was much inspired by him in New York during the 1940's. He even took the pen name 'Fiacc' (Dark Bird) , opposite to Colm's, (Dove) , as a tribute to Colm.

Best Poem of Padraic Colum

An Idyll

You stay for a while beside me with your beauty young and rare,
Though your light limbs are as limber as the foal's that follows the mare;
Brow fair and young and tender where thought has scarce begun,
Hair bright as the breast of the eagle when he strains up to the sun!

In the space of a broken castle I found you on a day
When the call of the new-come cuckoo went with me all the way,
You stood by un-mortised stones that were rough and black with age,
The fawn beloved of the hunter in the panther's broken cage!

And we went down together by paths your childhood ...

Read the full of An Idyll


Two little creatures
with faces the size of
a pair of pennies
are clasping each other
"Ah do not leave me"
One says to the other
in the high monkey -
cage in the beast shop
there are no people
