The Singing Bird Gives Thanks

Poem By Tomás Ó Cárthaigh

The singing bird gives thanks
By the melody of its song
Which you and I enjoy
As beneath we walk along
A pathway neath a tree
In the shade of the wood,
The hymn the bird is sining
Is, 'I Sing: The Lord Is Good.'
All we hear is twittering
From a bird in a tree
Maybe the only twittering
Are the hyms in church mumbled by you and me!

Why Should He Listen, The Burdened Lord?

Why should he listen, the burdened Lord?
Ignored by sundry and all
Who deny his mere existence
And his name in vain often call.

Paul Polansky Sat In My Kitchen

Paul Polansky sat in my kitchen,
Eat pudding and drank black tea,
As if he were but a friend,
Who passing happened to be.

A Gift From God

Every smile, every gurgle, every cry,
It is to you a gift from God,
Nurture it, and it will grow,
As the seed does in the sod...

A Day Like Today

A day like today is many things to many men,
Some cant wait for tomorrow, some dont want to see again,
For some good and some bad, some by paths they did not choose,
Some carved from themselves whether they win or they lose.

The Most Horrible Sight To A Man In This World Is The Beauty Of A Lady’s Smile

‘The most horrible sight to a man in this world’
Words I reads somewhere that escape my brain-
‘Is the beauty of a Ladies smile’
A sentiment I found insane!
