My Wild Irish Heart

My wild Irish heart - what could it do
that March when into my sweet girlhood blew
euphoria to make my heart careen?
Oh, heart as fresh as clover - kelly green -
when zephyr brought its scent of something new.

The breeze caressed me; all was made askew,
for what it had been carrying was you!
Beneath my tender breast there throbbed, unseen,
my wild Irish heart.

You bridled it and then you pierced it through.
Yet wilder than before and tough it grew.
For in your aftermath, I was to glean
the lessons that my youth had not foreseen -
and evermore would pulse in me - now blue -
my wild Irish heart!

For Sandy Ivy's Go Green - what green means to you? (new or old poem)Poetry Contest

    This is lovely and enchanting poem. I see you had a win in this contest Andrea. There is no doubt in my mind that you have an Irish background. My mother is from Scotland. You have such an amazing talent for writing so many different types of poetry. If I wasn't so ill, I could write more. I was not aware there were so many different types. I will read more of them. Just brilliant. Pam x

    Alas, a broken Irish heart. Though I am a Scot, I dig this piece. My son, Arthur, delved into the derivation of 'Austin' and discovered it was of Scottish origin. Love, daver

    A heart that was green as a bean. Was turned blue by one who's mean. Is still regal within our queen.

I had internet installed on my smart flat screen TV... My remote comes with a small keyboard, mouse pad. I can lay down and play on my computer with a hand size text keyboard that fits perfect in my hand.
