Here in my apartment lonely listening to

all the cars and traffic thinking of all

the quite times in Ireland.

 

I used to cook with my cooking pot

but now I see it in my storage

room thinking of all the times it burnt

my hand.

 

My teapot is still sitting in

my house in Ireland as it was the

only thing I forgot to bring **sigh**!!!

 

Now I remember my suitcase was

full there was no room for it because

I had no money to buy a bigger one.

 

When I was on my way to America I saw

two men fishing on a boyne coracle with

the homemade bread my mother baked

to sell at the market to make money.
