A Green Isle

The dark green of her eyes matches
An island far away
That lush green isle known as Ireland
A place to see one day

There is an arched shrub lined pathway
A gate there opens wide
So lush and green the passage there
It beckons come abide

Through a gate there's a lighthouse white
A beacon that flashes
A light to guide through darkest night
In the morn refreshes

    Ireland is a poet's paradise Sara and I do hope you get to visit one day. My last trip I drove over 900 miles around the isle with my aunt and we had so much fun getting lost! We found the factory where they make toy soldiers out of pewter and ship them all over the world, including England. It was out in the boonies and we were so happy we got lost and found it! I bought a chess set made out of pewter. It is one of my fondest memories of our trip. Congratulations on your win!
