In Dublin, on an Autumn Day

Written this morning in the Stephen's Green as my one year old slept happily in his Bugaboo, all wrapped up against the Autumn bite. There is nowhere quite as pleasant as the Green on a quiet Autumnal morning.

In Dublin, it is a treat
to find a seat in the Stephen's
Near the fountains
on Constance's Side
Where if you sit quiet and still
On an Autumn Morning
Chill in the air, and Leaves falling
A robin might appear
at your feet
Under the seat, where careless
Spill crumbs from O'Briens
And you watch the punks and goths
Followed by the suits and shoppers
And a park keeper passes
And nods, hello, the ducks in the pond
