Little Green Laughter

~~~ Sunlight sweeps above the dale, while shades of Heather lift their veil Then gentle mist of morning swirls, enhancing dawn with nature's pearls ~ Songbird's flight encircles glen, to spot late crawler's search for den Yet... Not all that dwells in understory, hides this day... this day's their glory ~ The songbirds flee... the piper grins "Far Darrig O'Malice yer at it again" The silence broke the wildwoods rustle from near and far, the wee ones hustle ~ The songs roll out the barrels too the leprechauns abandon shoe They all break out one piece of gold, to waste before their play grows cold ~ They barter sheep while lifting hogs They saddle ... ride ... the farmer's dogs And all the while they laugh and shout, they never spill their mugs of stout ~ The Cluricauns with stouter trumpet, descend the town... subdue the strumpet Spend their purse to chase romance the quean much slicker, steals their pants ~ Within the glen with dusk's approach, the smoke gets thick as suppers roast The music swirls, the echoes sail, the dancers chant an Irish tale ~ An those with naked butts are taught... they stop, it gives the bugs a shot Far Darrigs crawl beneath the kegs, they pop the corks and fill their legs ~ St. Patrick's blessed another year The sound of snoring now all you hear ~~~

Thank you Rex To receive a comment such as yours is a big deal for me. I am a newby and miles away from your demonstrated expertise. I am also still learning to weave my way around this website. Hence the delay if any. Thanks for the very encouraging comment. It has actually spurred me to write today. Regards and good wishes. Mariette Ross

Rex this is or should be a classic ...beautiful lines one and all... It paints such a vivid tale and I can see all you say in my minds eye as clear as it ... It deserves a scene or two in Darby O Gill, methinks...well done you ...
