A poem about defining moments in our growing up and wondering what our children will consider to be theirs.

Where were you when.................


news came through to Ireland 

about the glamorous, energetic hope

JFK, in distant Dallas


it was one small step for man

one giant leap for mankind


reports came in of a fatal accident

in a French underpass (in the same

week Mother Theresa died)


two planes, two towers

live on terrestrial t.v.


covid from the east

snuk in and shook the west

like a bear shaking a tree.
