+*+*+*+*+

Morning Glories shimmer,
In the early rising sun,
As rays reflect off fairy dust,
Sprinkled when day is done.

Shamrocks and Hollyhocks,
Line many a garden path,
And if you hush and listen,
You can hear the fairies laugh.

Lily of the Valley,
Perfumes the morning air.
And bluebells ring, in spritely tunes,
In Ireland's County Claire.

+*+*+*+*+

Yes, my grandma kept all of those, from those tiny white bells in a shady corner, to the tall and somehow-tough-enough hollyhocks right out in the Missouri sun....I haven't been to Ireland, but I've seen a bit of her beauty transplanted into a place that would have been bleary over dreary without it.

Thanks for the memory, even if it's of a different place, connected only by family ties that were old before I ever knew them.

Linda, This is one of your very best. What a beautiful image this brought forth this sunny morning.

Some day I hope to travel to Ireland and walk the hills of green.

Huggles and luvs, Marti

I've seen the heather mountain sides
And the greens where in the valley's lie.
And this I would about your say
Your poetry has made my day.

Why thank you, Sweetums! The Irish part of my Scottish blood, begs that I step on the sod of the Emerald Isle. Perhaps we could "fly" there together! ~ & bring the guys along with us, of course! lol :pigtail:

This is so pretty, Linda Lou. It warmed
up this chilly day in Florida. I'm saving
this one, my friend.

You just gave me a memory of my childhood path from front gate to doorsteps... with ghostly lily of the valley reflecting the moonlight like tiny lamps. *S*

Beautiful work, lady... I almost visited Ireland once but the trip was canceled... today, it came to me. *S*

Gentle and flowing, a pleasure to read you

these lines such perfect closure


Lily of the Valley,
Perfumes the morning air.
And bluebells ring, in spritely tunes,
In Ireland's County Claire.
