    Follow near the skimming oars
    That glide the straight flow of flowing river
    By rowers who set their time to know it
    And heave above rejecting currents

    Trainers push their orders through their yellow cones
    “Oisín lift it! Don’t let it drag along!”
    One hears it through the rising vapour of his breath
    And tiring, bows his head and drops his oars
    Like the strong bone of his heavy wing

    I am made alone by the old couple ahead
    Who pace slowly, linked through the years,
    Protected still in their sickly gait.
    But gently now I overtake and leave behind
    This pair deep into their late reflections

    On choosing a wood-wet bench by the riverbank
    I tried nothing but to hear the Liffey trickle
    And pedal on some plain meditations
    And close my eyes but can’t stay shut
    And self-consciously they unclose

    Across the water another man is sitting
    Vacantly in the resting shade of his mind
    With a gaze unmoving and I imagine myself
    Sitting there now emptying promises to the wind
    And the river and the sounds of people passing by
    Softly patting their leashed animals

    And looking across the water I like to think that he may know
    That I would sometime like to fall into the river
    And be a wandering rose in the stream
    And see through the wandering eye of the rose
    And wash ashore a foreign flower
    To wake alone and spread a budding meadow

    Until finally one day being plucked and set and planted,
    By some caring human hand,
    To live up and grow frail and once again to stretch
    My green limbs out toward the daily sun
    And be a fragrance on the spinning breath
    Of this earth and this earths living tongue

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
