         Margaret Jackson

The English language brings out the best in the Irish. They court it like a beautiful woman. They make it bray with donkey laughter. They hurl it at the sky like a paint pot full of rainbows, and then make it chant a dirge for manís fate and manís follies that is as mournful as misty spring rain crying over the fallow earth.
         T E Kalem

O Ireland isn't it grand you look--
Like a bride in her rich adornin?
And with all the pent-up love of my heart
I bid you the top o' the mornin!
         John Locke "The Exile's Return"

         Marianne Moore "Spenser's Ireland"

On she went, and her maiden smile
In safety lighted her round the Green Isle;
And blest forever was she who relied
Upon Erin's honor and Erin's pride.
         Thomas Moore

There is no language like the Irish for soothing and quieting.
