    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

She Moved Through The Faire

My young love said to me: My mother won't mind,
And my father won't slight you for your lack of kind.
She put her arms 'round me; these words she did say:
It will not be long, love, 'til our wedding day!
Then she stepped away from me, and she moved thru the Faire,
And so fondly I watched her move here and move there;
At last she turned homeward, with one star awake,
As the Swan in the evening moves over the lake.
Last night she came to me, my dead love came in,
And so soft did she move that her feet made no din;
She put her arms 'round me; these words ...

Old Woman Of The Roads

O, to have a little house!
To own the hearth and stool and all!
The heaped up sods against the fire,
The pile of turf against the wall!
To have a clock with weights and chains
And pendulum swinging up and down!
A dresser filled with shining delph,
Speckled and white and blue and brown!
I could be busy all the day
