Ok i'm not Irish and i've never been to Ireland, but I have Irish acensary. Anyway my uncle had a friend form Ireland who drew his home of Ireland from memory and now it's here in my home. I'd thought I'd use it for this challenge.

Lines of Ireland

There's a picture,
That dons the wall,
That has always compelled me,
Of what it was like,
To live in that farmhouse,
The emerald Isle people tell me,
The colour green rings clear,
But this picture only,
Black, white and the inbetween grays,
Yet I see the colour of blueskies,
The green in the grass and the trees,
I see the sliver of day old duckings
The sweet colour of farmlife,
Stood in awe of my imagination,
I stood in the lines of Ireland.

Ooooh, I like and now, you have given me inspiration to try one, too. Since I'm not Irish either.

There's many a Irish home, with drawings and paintings of home, adorning their walls
Your poem reminds me of their great pride of home and family
thankyou

Moon Dust,

Well done and very original. You are very lucky to have that picture. Thank you for sharing it with us!

Poetry should surprise by fine excess...it should strike the reader as a wording of his own highest thoughts and appear almost a remembrance. -J.Keats
