On these Isles - for Parker


Oh sail with me to the isles of yore,
on a maiden voyage of gentle seas,
and run with me through mire and mists,
on a lover's magical journey.

Upon these shores such memories,
are rolling like these azure tides,
come lie with me beneath the stars,
till this fervour finally subsides.

Know today that weve been blessed,
your surname will now carry on,
come March and many months to go,
our bonnie babe, well look upon.

And many years shall come to pass
Ill still see beauty in your eyes,
and fall again into your arms,
until the last breath in me dies.

Oh, on these isles, we love.

2000 Corinne Bailey

Love the idea of being with someone you love in such a special place. Happy St. Patrick's day!

Thank you sweet poet. I almost missed this, glad I was looking at book entries.

I always wondered if there was a whole poem to that first verse that you used in a reply so many years ago. It somehow ended up as the defining verse in one of mine... although kind of a stretch from Norse Mythology to Irish myth. but don't all sea's lead to Ireland and Irish lasses.

Thanks for the smile.

I recently discovered a band... Flogging Molly http://www.floggingmolly.com/
They appear to hail from your part of the country. Where has that sweet poet been. I haven't seen any words in the blue pages from you. I hope your well... St Patty's day is coming.
