Love it

I just love this poem, I love what it says about the blissfulness of youth and how Ireland was changing and how the young people used to revolt against the old system, bring in a modern Ireland, the one you and me know it as today. I always smile when reading this poem and personally it’s really the only poem that got stuck in my head after reading it.
