A Love Letter to Ireland - by Claireban

Beautiful Claireban, thank you for reminding me of my mother.

A love letter to Ireland

i miss you
I miss you
I miss you blowing in my hair
whispering in my ear
confusing me
I miss lying in your fields
swimming in your seas
smelling you
smelling of you
i want to inhale your gorse
Kneel in your churches
Perv on your knackers
I miss your men
God i miss your men
I miss your tracksuits
your nike airmax
your women
your mackerel
your humor
you camouflaged me
you illuminated me
you gave me this skin
Ireland your in me
your my name
your my great strong roots
the blaze in my hair
my voice
my accent
my prayers
my curses
my wilderness
your my conscience
my family
my freckles
my fire
You Mothered me
Fathered me
Your the most beautiful land I've ever seen
I dream of you
I love you
I love you
I love you

see you soon


(Co Wicklow - Niall O'Brien)
