Away From It All

Away From It All

Poem Courtesy of Thurles Author & Poet Tom Ryan ©

So, alone and happy in the world,
We two in a rustic wilderness
Can listen to the wind
And its tale of the centuries.
The present and its ephemeral importance
Can be forgotten in this old house,
Cherishing its own quiet wisdom.
The years are great teachers.
Man’s yearning is a whisper
In a tumultuous and eternal sea.
Hear the wind sigh and breathe,
All is vanity.


Tom Ryan, “Iona”, Rahealty, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.
