An Isle Most Fair

Fields verdant, glens spacious
Folk pleasant, hearts gracious
Of folklore entwined tapestry
Fiction and factual history

Down to earth folk and lovely brogue
Wit and lilt whenever they spoke
Pleasant county fairs and counties fair
Many wares, the other made aware

Here they know Camus from Seamus
Here they know Bailey from Sally
Merriment and flowing taps turn
Nary a soul that’s taciturn

A land that shares its treasure
Moved hearts and minds to venture
where learned ideas, science and arts
Spurred the progress of many parts

Pride of place encircled by tide
A sense of place with homely pride
Humour amuses and disarms
Land of Muses and many charms
