Today the chrysalis of silken thread
Engulfed colorful butterfly I said
Yesterday’s shaky colt with wobbly knees
Has jumped all fences- left paddock with ease

Play in green pastures, Eire bonnie lass
Swift hoofs that fly above ancestral grass
With cool dawn you start a different race
Relish the strength of your focused embrace

Home fires kept from behind rampart walls
Battles begun- together stand or fall
Foundation of love and sweet history
Together we’ll flourish as foes do flee

Warrior princess, courtesan, delight
Dreams of you must appease through long dark nights
