the Emerald Isle

When Erin ["Ireland"] first rose from the dark-swelling flood, God blessed the green island, he saw it was good.
The Emerald of Europe, it sparkled and shone.
In the ring of this world, the most precious stone.
~ William Drennan

Today is busy ... I will post only this. Ireland ... though I'd never been there, she had somehow called to me throughout my life. At last, gratefully, I answered the call. I will share in the coming days ...
