Poem of the day
Lal Of Kilrudden
by Bliss Carman and Richard Hovey
Kilrudden ford, Kilrudden dale,
Kilrudden fronting every gale
On the lorn coast of Inishfree,
And Lal's last bed the plunging sea.
Lal of Kilrudden with flame-red hair,
And the sea-blue eyes that rove and dare,
And the open heart with never a care;

Very few things happen at the right time and the rest do not happen at all. The conscientious historian will correct these defects.
