Themes

A pool of landscape myths for
bringing to culture, renewed;
the Shannon sings her legends
for drinking cattle.
Her stories of place
assimilate Gaelic tales,
creating a mythology for
each part of our country;
bringing these threads,
from the enlightenment, to you;
a sense of belonging
to each place,
of ours.

Themes and Lughnadhsa are two short pieces which emerged from a creative writing class run by Monica Corish, at the Glens Centre, Manorhamilton, County Leitrim on 11 August 2019. Many thanks.
