Deirdre - Poem by John Molloy

Remember the sharp brightness
Of the Summer lit chalk walls
Of the house,
The Dandelions we picked
And the jam jars lined
Aloft the mighty sill;
The calm kindness
Always known amidst
The family's turmoil,
That had brother and
Sister within the bounds
Of harm.

Remember the book 'Ben Her'
I got for my birthday
And the Miney Mouse you got
From Da' - and that Veronica
Never really mattered that year;
When the castle grounds
That held our dreams,
Our laughs and cries
Seen but beneath their walls
A bitter sight.
Miney Mouse and Dandelions were you,
Then and now - My Sister.
