pure poetry!

The Carlow Nationalist: The imminent arrival of US president Barack Obama has prompted 96-year-old PJ Furey to let his creative juices flow ….he has written a poem in tribute to the US president, honouring his historic visit to Ireland…

Arise you friendly Irish folk, And give a rousing cheer,
For the President of America, And his wife are coming here.

They arrive in Dublin City, On the twenty-third of May,
And thousands will be greeting them, On this historic day.

Then Barack gives a timely speech, And clearly lets us see,
He is the man for creed and clan, For peace and liberty.

And so to Offaly they go, To give a special call,
To visit their ancestor’s place, In dear old Moneygall.

And the people of the village, So faithful and so true,
Will proudly greet them when they call, With a Céad Míle Fáilte too.

They will thank the noble couple, And their good friends one and all,
And wish everyone fond memories, Of their time in Moneygall.

Now young and old in Erin’s isle, Wish Barack and Michelle,
Success in all they undertake, And a very long life as well!

😉
