    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

A Cradle Song

O men from the fields,
Come gently within.
Tread softly, softly
O men coming in!
Mavourneen is going
From me and from you,
Where Mary will fold him
With mantle of blue!
From reek of the smoke
And cold of the floor
And the peering of things
Across the half-door.
O men of the fields,
Soft, softly come thro'
Mary puts round him
Her mantle of blue.

The Plougher

Sunset and silence! A man: around him earth savage, earth broken;
Beside him two horses -- a plough!
Earth savage, earth broken, the brutes, the dawn man there in the sunset,
And the Plough that is twin to the Sword, that is founder of cities!
"Brute-tamer, plough-maker, earth-breaker! Can'st hear? There are ages
between us.
Is it praying you are as you stand there alone in the sunset?
"Surely our sky-born gods can be naught to you, earth child and earth
