Many thanks indeed for posting those three poems. William Allingham's much moved me and brought back a lot of very happy childhood memories.
I shall have it framed and sent to my brother, as we have often discussed and tried to remember it. I really do so wish that there was more Celtic poetry posted on the C/Bar web. Both ancient and modern, much is so very powerful and moving. I have often wondered if WBY had married Maud Gonne, would his love poems have ever been written? He must have been inconsolable when he lost to her to John Macbride.
Again, Many thanks for your time and kindness - GB!
