Traveling Light by Nuala Molloy Moran



Traveling Light

I sent my old baggage packing

I carried it around way too long

Now I let it sail on forever

On a first class trip to nowhere


No heavy cargo to lug around here

Or to burden my new style

So extremely long overdue

I have never felt so free!

Irish Love by: Nuala Molloy Moran

Irish Magic  --by Nuala Molloy Moran c 02-2016


Rolling down the hills of Ireland entwined and laughing

Landing at the bottom in the sweet green clover

Kicking up my heels dancing a reel all around you

Singing the songs we love over and over and over


Irish love…beauty everywhere…Irish love…music fills the air


Diving into the cold but lovely Irish Sea

Kissing and splashing in the frothy spray

Sunning ourselves, delighting in a picnic

Sharing secret dreams of the past and today


Irish love…tenderness counts…Irish love…fun is paramount


Stepping up to the Giant’s Causeway

My most favorite Irish natural wonder

Which compliments you magnificently —

An intricate staircase and sky of thunder


Irish love…cheers to your health!  Irish love…more precious than wealth


Bending on one knee outside my door

With talk about seeing the preacher

Love overflows and fills our storehouse 

Thanks be to the Infinite Teacher!


Irish love…would never chain…Irish love…only good to gain


St. Patrick summed up Irish love poetically:

(Although this is not from a reliable source)

“It’s joyously unrestrained, and creeps up on you—

If it was a snake it would have bit me, of course!”


Irish love…Have a Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  Irish Love…Luck o’ the Irish – it’s not a cliché

–Nuala Molloy Moran c 2008


(Thanks to a DNA source, Nuala is 93% Irish, and also Jewish, Scottish, Welsh, British, Finnish, Scandinavian, Eastern European, Western European, and Russian – I may have left something out…
