Irish Scene

Brandon Burdette

A vision of Irish castles, obsolete: Ripples of a jade countryside spotted with jewelry of lakes. On the muted arched roof aerial cottons meander. Uilleann Pipes shower the land with righteous cries. Memories of violence boil moderately. Hills relax, thawed by sunshine’s cheer and concession of clouds. The Sun is motherly – tender-hearted – in Ireland, proud to present her exhibit, although endlessly vexed and thwarted by moody mischief of the clouds!


B. R. Burdette is a poet from CA, US. His poems have been published in several literary journals, including the 15th Annual of Oberon Poetry, NY.
