Life in Ireland
By Lucy Barrett Rang 4
Now that I’m here in Australia cooking the dinner,
I suddenly start to think about my life in Ireland
And all the good times I used to have.
Two of the things I loved in Ireland,
Was going to a friend’s house for cup of tea in the afternoon,
Or the smell of porridge in the morning coming from the cooking pot.
Of course, I miss porridge and tea
But the thing I miss most is my family.
I’m here all alone in this small, narrow house.
How I hope we’ll beat Britain in the next war about.
