The Way We Are

Still on the subject of bogs have a look at Niall Wright's paintings. 
See link  below

The Way We Are

This we take almost for granted:
The summer leaden Irish sky, green drumlin hills,
heathered, mossed and dry stone walled,
rivers forded by rock clumps and clumped reeds.

And somewhere in an album marked Early Years
I see you standing, lollipop in hand,
teetering on a rock mid-stream
your red hair blowing mid-current
your freckled skin awakening to the sun.

And I give thanks now that you have returned
from foreign climes and black-dyed tresses
and slick fake tan,to yourself -
Irish cailín, bog style and proud of it.
