'Over the Edge' at Cúirt

My qualifications for reviewing modern Irish literature are limited to:

    - I live in Ireland, and,

    - I like books

With that disclaimer...

The Over the Edge Showcase was, for me, a highlight of the Cúirt International Festival of Literature.  The event was billed as giving “a platform to emerging poets and…

Spring Poems ~ A Favorite of Mine

When weeds, in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;

Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush

The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush

With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

What is all this juice and all this…
