Years ago there was an annual online poetry slam in honor of the Goddess Brighid, patron of poets. I don’t know if anyone still participates but I love the idea.

Brigid by Emily Balivet

In honor of the Celtic goddess I post the work of my favorite Irish poet.

Father and Child
She hears me strike the board and say
That she is under ban
Of all good men and women,
Being mentioned with a man
That has the worst of all bad names;
And thereupon replies
That his hair is beautiful,
Cold as the March wind his eyes.

by William Butler Yeats
