On The Bard Of Knocknagree

It is thanks to the likes of Jerry O'Leary of Umeraboy that Ned Buckleys poems are living
In the book of Ned's poems he has given to Knocknagree a gift that is worth giving
When it comes to Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra's literary greats his name is worthy of mention
The poems of the famous Bard Of Knocknagree are well worthy of attention

Ned Buckley died in 1954 this is going back many a Season
His legacy his amazing poems and this of course is the reason
That his name is living on today and by his fans celebrated
For far too long the famous bards by literary dons under rated

A Duhallow literary icon of his time at poetry readings often the main attraction
With fountain pen and writing pad he was a man of action
In the many poems he brought to life he had the gift of giving
And it is thanks to people like Jerry O' Leary that his name is still living

Ned Buckley was a famous poet his poems do not lack in passion
Though sadly in these changing times rhyme has gone out of fashion
In the literary circles of today his sort may be under rated
But the famous Bard Of Knocknagree deserves to be celebrated.
