Ring of Kerry
by James Mitchell
Photos by Graham Sivills
Ceile,
dance uncertain times
in square
or line.
We bow,
link arms and spin
as if the wind would set us free.
Alone,
in pairs,
the pipe,
tin whistle,
fiddle sew
seeds of joyous
revery.
The music drops
embracing mist,
not dew.
The tears we cry
are not in pain
but for wont to dance
the Ring of Kerry.
