Passing Sounds

Even the graveyards speak

in Ireland,

but ’tis no surprise, after all,

in this anachronistic land

where storytellers are cherished,

still abound,

and cannot be silenced by

mere death.


The faces of the worn stones call out

one by one,

the granite chipped out letter by letter with

bits of verse, meditations to ponder.

songs for the singing.


A lifetime is not quite enough

for the stories they need tell.

In Ireland

even the dead

raise their voices

to be heard
