Seamus '76

Seamus, he's one of us--
part-man, part-God & part-beast.
Juno & Venus sit low in the sky
as an Earth eye looks East.

Seamus, he's one of us--
talk of the town of renown.
Caught between both a verb & a noun
& lit by the lamp of the Moon.

Seamus, he's one of us--
friend to both lady & gent.
The landlord's come around again
looking for last month's rent.

Seamus, he's one of us--
born of both Land & of Sea.
Tara goes 'round barrow mounds,
while he's gone lush w/fresh leaves.

Seamus, he's one of us--
awakened midway in a dream.
His father's gone missing
& his mother's reminiscing about
lands that seem as they mean.

Seamus, he's one of us--
July mountains brown @ his feet.
Weather accidental, then
Summer fires flash billowed heat.

Seamus, he's one of us.
Seamus, he's one of us.
Seamus, he's one of us.
Born of both Land & of Sea.
