Poem: Cross the Emerald Isle | stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal

Near Ceide Fields, County Mayo, Ireland

by Luis S. González-Acevedo

I

Cross the Emerald Isle

Cross the Emerald Isle once more,

my Corracloona Prince and Leitrim Lord.

Easterlies will sail you –Connell– to her river’s ford.

But first, wage your loving war against the ocean’s roars,

that you may proudly disembark upon her island’s shores.

Thrust through the winding paths of Rich Port’s forest

as Taína’s prickling rains drown your Irish soul in peaceful rest

and guide you toward the island’s tropic center.

There, you’ll be compelled to render

your heart by love distressed.


The Poetic Story of Princess Taína & Prince Connell’s Wild Atlantic Love will be featured in my novel stories of a beautiful haunting… surreal in April of 2021–
