The wait is over! The Auld Sod, my first self-published book of prose and poetry, has arrived! My goal was to write with the mindset of the Irish in days past and how they viewed their world. Here is a sample poem:
I have always found my wits in a gutter
but this time differs than any other
for people saunter by without saying a word
when usually my rants are acknowledged and heard.
So, gathering my strength, I begin to arise –
gone is the haze that usually clouds my eyes.
The presence of lead typically in my feet
has left my brogues and became one with the street.
The pub being far from my place of residence,
I started for home out of fear of darkness.
Upon my arrival in the evening,
I hear the sound of old women keening.
The door was removed and the widows sealed.
Da must have died while working in the field
but to my horror as I looked through the glass,
it was not he; it was I who had passed!
