The empty cooking pot

By Catherine Flanagan, Primary

Object No. 81 Empty cooking pot, nineteenth century
National Museum of Ireland - Country Life

the empty cooking pot is now full 

as black as the pot may be 

the food it makes is tasty 

for sure the divine smells

that come from its contents 

would surely call you to the kitchen door

it’s hard to imagine the hardship 

the irish people endured 

when the blight came and ruined the spud 

oh how wholesome and grand they were 

but now the sound spuds would but bud

Ireland and her nation got through 

the famine years thank god 

the spud is back again 

we also have other good food now 

so lets fill the empty cooking pot a

nd make divine smells that will 

call them from the mountain glens
