Autumn
The leaves of autumn rustle ’neath my feet,     And trees, that in the spring, have looked so fair, And shelter gave through storm or summer heat,   Now stretch their arms to heaven, all bleak and bare. The winds that whistle o'er the lea proclaim   The app...

The Road to Victory
Thorny and broken, crimson paven,   Chill with the winds that blow from night; With many footsteps deeply graven,   Hidden in shade and bathed in light. Winding afar thro’ dale and valley.   Twining on high, up hill and steep; Trodden by hosts that may not ...

Seaside Thoughts
I looked on the silver, shimmering sea, And a message of peace it brought to me, As it mirrored the infinite blue above ’Twas an emblem fair of eternal love; A message of peace to a world of woe, A healing balm to the souls that know Of the wounds of sorrow...

Lough Neagh, and Home.
Son of Old Ireland, but his lot Lies in a foreign, far-off spot; He pauses oft, to think of — what?    Lough Neagh; and home! Twin pictures they have ever been, A white familiar sheet — no scene To thrill strange eyes — then fields of green,     Lough Neagh...
