BALTIMORE, COUNTY CORK ~ A poem by Maureen Weldon

BALTIMORE, COUNTY CORK

That day,
sky, mountains, cliffs and glorious wind-swept air.

How could I not dance?
Dance among sea pinks and spongy grasses.

Climb sheer rugged rocks.
‘To the Beacon,’ my friend called.

There, secure between two boulders, I looked down,
down on smoke-blue, sun-diamond sea.
