Galway Bay


I wrote this poem after a visit to Ireland.


Galway Bay

We sing
Watch the sun go down on Galway Bay
But the rain poured down
The clouds raced across the sky
Waves beat on the shore.
A Rainbow arches over the water
We race to find the end
But the rain poured down. 
Never reached the end of the rainbow
Or found the crock ,of gold
And the rain poured down
Huddled in the car
Watching the fishing boats
Red Blue green
Appear out of the grey mist
Fighting the white foam
To return to harbour
And the rain poured down.
We never saw the sun
Go down on Galway bay.
