The Cliffs of Dun Angus

27 February 2010

I’ve been to the Cliffs at Dun Angus
And walked the ramparts of the old hill-fort,
Watched, as the falcons fly from their nests
At the sunset off Ireland’s western shore.

Where Celts of old stood have I strolled
And gazed out upon the stony hills and rocky rills
That pile the land up before the cliffs
And plunge into the Atlantic’s wine-dark deep.

I stood at the edge of Dun Angus
And looked out Westward, toward the beach
Of ancient, pearly sands in Faerie-lands
Far, far across the sad breach of time.

    I’ve never been there, physically, but
    I have now walked the cliffs of Dun Angus.

    Thanks Glynn! It’s a beautiful, lonely place…the last, westernmost point of Europe.

    Dude you totally recaptured what it was like being there. When are we going back?

      I’d love to go back to the Arans. Hard to believe that was almost 6 years ago, isn’t it?
