Looking for perfection
My city sleeps great Liffey sighs and meanders Winter frosts have not deadened its fortunes Humble shelter though it was perched on a hill of bones It now beckons me to relive its stories to unearth its stones
The undignified duty of mortal demise hidden behind the walls Pull at the consciousness of accountability, morals and all Monuments of stone tell of past glories and endeavour Kingdom of heavenly Spires aspiring to a coming together
Sunlight spills its last symphony of summer reflections Dancing dogs and playful fountain ejections Hibernating on the ridge of learned inspection Eblana and I meet at its intersection

What You Can Expect
A walk through Dublin City in the company of a native Dubliner with the emphasis on history, culture and the great Irish ability to tell a story and to sing a song. In addition, and at no extra cost an actual rendition of a self-penned verse or perhaps a spot of warbling. I'd like to share my love of history with you, after all the past is our present and should be part of our future.
