Banagher Glen


(a Keats sonnet)


Where rowans grow nearby the downy birch-
where neolithic farmers first arrived,
a forest flourishes in sunlit beams,
and in Glenedra Valley, there's a church.
'Twas founded by St. Patrick there beside
a flowing stream.  Sorrel and celandine
limn ancient stone of which the church was made,
where spirited, the willow warblers search
the sessile oak and hazel, far and wide.
An Irish treasure found, the woodland gleams;
so swiftly blows the wind where trees entwine
as pathways old into the Sperrins thrive
by trails laced with gentle columbine,
as in the glen, the past remains alive...
