Thanks aurora, you must have some of the Irish in you.

Now if I could transport all of you over to Bradford-on-Avon for our Irish Night! ;-)

Hi Alan,
thanks for those I understand your "angel death" title...and the meaning of your haiku. I LOVE that photo!

Thanks Lary,

A very sad poem, but voted 5th most popular poem in Eire.

I'm lucky that Brendan Kennelly is coming to the Bristol Poetry Festival so maybe he'll read both, or at least Raglan Lane!

The photo is amazing. I didn't know Karen's hair was like that when I took the photo, at Holt National Trust, and was stunned when I saw the photos. I absolutely adore it.
