Wells of Tara

Tomás at the Liath Fail in its current setting. It used to be outside the door of The Mound of the Hostages.

From Tara, where expanse can be seen,
From the Irish sea, to the Shannons water
Expanse of the Kingdom of Royal Meath
Won by the Ui Neill by battles slaughter
It was a sacred place before their time
Its energies aligned with stars and sun
Weakened now in these modern times
Where we as a people to scoff at such have begun…

From the ground they trickled pure, the Wells of Tara
Of the White Calf, and the desirable waters, the others not so,
St Patrick’s, another was named in time
It had a different name, long long ago…
I walked those earthworks: what remains
Watched motorcars drive the path once walked by kings
Marveled at the educated ignorance of man
Rued the destruction of our heritage it brings.
