Greeny Water

Erie Canal-Lockport New York

Street Mural Lockport New York
Lockport NY mural quoting Patrick Kavanaugh , Grand Canal Dublin

Lines Written on a Seat
on the Grand Canal, Dublin

O commemorate me where there is water
Canal water preferably, so stilly
Greeny at the heart of summer. Brother
O commemorate me thus beautifully
Where by a lock Niagarously

O commemorate me where there is water,
Canal water, preferably, so stilly
Greeny at the heart of summer. Brother
Commemorate me thus beautifully
Where by a lock niagarously roars
The falls for those who sit in the tremendous silence
Of mid-July. No one will speak in prose
Who finds his way to these Parnassian islands.

A swan goes by head low with many apologies,
Fantastic light looks through the eyes of bridges –
And look! a barge comes bringing from Athy
And other far-flung towns mythologies.
O commemorate me with no hero-courageous
Tomb – just a canal-bank seat for the passer-by.

  1. That’s an interesting mural Alice. It looks as if it occupies a huge area. Thanks for participating.
