Orla

In this world of woe your bright light shines through
Your gentleness of nature makes all things new
Out of the depths  that saw your dad's death
Hope and joy were rekindled in your vital breath
Guardian of the fragile flame that is you
Your mum exemplifies love and care true.

The sun on high envies the warmth of your smile
The rippling brook is your bubbling laughter
The busy house sparrow lives in your bustling style
The sibilant siskin  your soft tongue takes after.

We look on in awe in this world of strife 
As we bless you and thank God for your promising life.
Just like the Phoenix,as it were,you arose from the fire
Let us hope  you create  all the good your heart does desire.
