(8 December 1881 – 11 January 1972 / County Longford)


How great a front is thine
A lake of majesty!
Assyria knew the sign
The god-incarnate king!

A lake of majesty
The lion's drowns in it!
And thy placidity
A moon within that lake!

As if thou still dost own
A world, thou takest breath
Earth-shape and strength of stone,
A Titan-sultan's child!
