On Francis Ledwidge "The Poet Of The Blackbird'

Posted Monday 31st May 2010 at 02:37 by Francis Duggan
The poet and the soldier of Slane County Meath
With a tragic fate he was destined to meet
A World War 1 poet in battle he died
Far from his beloved Ireland and his home countryside
Francis Ledwidge breathed his last when in his life's prime
But his poetry does survive the great test of time
The beauty in his words with the reader remain
You read his poems once you will read them again
With the best poets of his era he does compare
He has been referred to as the Irish John Clare
Though long dead his fame as a poet has grown
One can say of him in a class of his own
In his short life by good example he did lead
And his beautiful poems are a pleasure to read.
