Celtic Woman’s newest single—to hint at their upcoming album Postcards from Ireland—is a touching new interpretation of of the 1912 poem by the Irish poet and Republican revolutionary Patrick Pearse, set to music by Patrick Cassidy. ☘️
Mise Éire means I am Ireland. It is the story of Ireland in the person of an old woman, grieving that her own children have sold her.
I am afraid I have missed quite a few weeks and a few songs, but today I will continue the series, on a lovely Sunday—the first Sunday in the lusty month of May! 🌳
The month of May was come, when every lusty heart beginneth to blossom, and to bring forth fruit; for like as herbs and trees bring forth fruit and flourish in May, in likewise every lusty heart that is in any manner a lover, springeth and flourisheth in lusty deeds. For it giveth unto all lovers courage, that lusty month of May.
