A Well of Unwept Tears

Deep down within us, lies a well of unwept tears, perhaps the tears of a lifetime. The moments, the days, the years of a life are never lost. Each life holds these tears, life’s well. The hallowed, hollow space of loss, the hurts tucked safely in heart’s folds, the...

Glamour of Gougane Barra

Where the rugged road goes winding To lone Gougane far away. Where the silver streams come tumbling, Roved my feet one summer’s day. Clad in purple were those hillsides, Fuchsia lined that mountain road. O what beauty on you, West Cork, Has the hand of God bestowed!...
