    And you brought back the whole thing …and your pencil throbs like a violin: the windy silhouette and the throbbing cottage are “mind-blowing”!

  2. I love this poem – one of the few I have off by heart – and your illustration is just magical. Do you sell prints or are you planning to publish a collection?

    Search for Arlo Guthrie – the Last of the Brooklyn Cowboys. Farrell O’Gara is track one. And there is some other lovely stuff on there

    I thought I’d left a comment here saying how much I liked this too. And with what I think is the perfect music to go with it. Kevin Burke with Farrell O’Gara. He hails from West Clare and In my opinion this is the best ever version of this air. Weirdly enough on an old Arlo Guthrie album! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wjWzU3M7J5A
