Somewhere My Love

 

Somewhere my love is waiting for me.  He doesn’t know I exist yet; but I believe he will come to me.

I sit here pondering what will he look like.  Will he be tall and handsome?  Will he have dark hair and eyes that sparkle the minute he sets eyes on me?  Will it be love at first sight?

 

I know that I am ready to be loved and give love back.  We will live in a cottage on Lugnaquilla Mountain near the town of Kerry.  We will raise sheep and goats and sell our wool and milk in the town square on Market Day.  Our faithful donkey, Minnie will pull our cart.  We will eat at O’Grady’s Pub before heading back home and each drink a glass of ale.  The owner, Thomas O’Grady will ask how our day went at market and his darling wife will bring us a Shepherd’s Pie.  We will enjoy ourselves before we have to make the cold trek home. 

 

The fire will have died and I will throw on another log to get the cottage warm.  My love will put Minnie in the barn, wipe her down and give her a bucket of oats.  The goats need milking and their evening meal.

The sheep are grazing in the pasture.

 

When he returns to the cottage, we shall talk about our success at market and put our money in the old earthen pot hidden in the pantry.  He will kiss me tenderly at first and then passion will overwhelm us.  At last, we will take to our bed and make love for hours.

 

I love my life as an Irish Farmer’s wife.
