Blarney Castle

The Calmness of an Unhurried Culture Remains


Let’s fill our castles full

of trinkets, deep wool scarves

feather beds and niceties.

The next generation will

split the wealth among farmers.

The earnings of a final generation

the overgrowing ivy

an abandoned mansion

managing a gnarly tree in

the drawing room.
