Where would the modern poets be if not for those that went before us, such greats like Elizabeth Barrett Browning, W. B. Keats, and Thomas Moore. A quote from the poet and theologian whose poem that this writer is about to showcase during National Poetry Month. Denis has even been so kind to include this writer with a compliment such as follows:
We Irish know poetry, we are the wordsmiths of mankind, the heartbeat within the breast, and the soul given by God. To speak to all and then to move the mountains that are men’s minds toward their higher nature. We recognize one of our own in Janice Robinson, a dear fellow in a sacred art.
But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling like dew upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
The following poem is that which Denis O’Callaghan Ph.D., Th.D. has submitted for inclusion in Volume 1 of ‘April is all about poetry’ series.
‘The Celtic Connection’A blast of Celtic music, A sound fossil from the past, Carried from a distant space To ear, through mouth, Through millennium of time, Tied his soul to a billion men, Of the same tribe, Of the same spirit, By some intangible thread.By Denis O’Callaghan© 2012
