Sun And Silhouettes

Sun on Georgian pillars
Sudden green surprises
Of lush squares city gardens
Museums galleries
Relics of alien empire
Amid hurrying dawdling tourists
Seeking these relics of occupation
And the revolt against
In arts and life

Walk home along Liffeyside quays
In magic twilight hour
When clear sky still light enough
To silhouette
Faintly lit
Domes and rooflines
Roofmounted statues
Of saints virgins heroes
Dark outlines against glowing sky
Reflected in slow-flowing river
Dreamtime in Dublin
Competes with roar of
Petrolfuming cars and buses behind
