Overnight on Aran. ( Oíche ar Árann)

Summer is over

After eight nights on Aran,

A fall of heavy rain

Two white dogs

Outside the back door

Were a sudden snowfall

In the month of June.

Strength in the wind

that prevailed this morning,

talk of the ‘cut’of eight Conemara men

who caused commotion

the night before,

they heckled my night walk

as I strolled the roads

in search of inspiration

contemplating comparisons

between this countryside

and my town land in Mayo.
