Emerald Currents

My address is in America
not waterside by the Shannon
My house a bungalow
not warmed by peat

I do have dreams
of the Emerald Isle,
that leave me longing
for hills I've never walked

I do not have
an Irish accent
nor is the auld sod
beneath my feet

But what I have is
Eire in my heart
and in my veins
For now, it is enough


"Let your laws come undone
Don't suffer your crimes
Let the love in your heart take control..."

-'The Hair Song', by Black Mountain

Tell me what is in your heart...
