“Descent From Croagh Patrick” by C. Murray

Descent From Croagh Patrick

Remember the placing of each and every stone
remember the bone white light of each one
beneath the bones of your feet
remember the queer light they cast for your dream.

He knocks the stones together to get out the green

Remember with your feet as you descend that
there’s gold in the mountain and that the stones
skim circular on the bed of the stream-
he knocks the stones together to get out the green.

Remember the placing of each and every stone
remember the bone white light of each one
beneath the bones of your feet
remember the queer light they cast for your dream.
