Locations…

County Sligo, Carrowmore, Tuesday 26th July 2022…

***

***

Almost as impressive as the monuments themselves,

if not more so,

are the locations in which they are situated.

***

***

If cemetery builders were artists!

***

***

It is difficult not to suspect

that there is a high purpose here too.

***

***

But these things are, for the most part,

taken for granted

by the majority of sight-seers.

***

***

And that high purpose

goes undetected

and is not even suspected.

***

***

Which is a pity!

In the Cave of Cruachan, Very-White-Clear-Sight sat in meditation,

“Mother,” she said, “I see a chariot coming over the plain.”

“Describe it,” said Sweet-Mouthed Maeve.

Said Very-White, “truly, I see horses pulling the chariot:

two stormy dappled greys

alike in colour and shape;

nostrils wide

heads erect

ears pricked;

manes flowing

of full slim-girth

their tails curled;

galloping side by side

bounding apace

they career along.

A chariot of fine wood,

the high frame’s wicker-work

creaks above its two black wheels:

its curved yoke is silver mounted.

In the chariot

a dark,melancholy man:

his eyebrows jet

his face pale

cheeks ruddy;

his blue mantle is

held across the chest

by a salmon brooch.

A three pronged javelin

gleams from his shoulder.

An awning of bird plumage

waves from his chariot frame…
