Nature’s Oath, poems by Niall Cahir

Niall Cahir  -Writer, Photographer, Artist. Based in Birr Co Offaly. Born 1966, in Cork city. Niall’s poetry is honest, deep and meaningful. Snap-shots of everyday life, thought provoking, with spiritual imagery. Measured shares of shade and light, strong yet delicate in texture, just like the man himself! Niall has performed at events such as ‘Scene of the Rhyme’, ‘Voices Raising’ and at music festival ‘Electric Picnic’. His framed writings hang in a number of private collections in Germany, the UK and Ireland.

“To put down a story-line credibly, lyrically, with rhyme and rhythmic beat, using assonance and alliterative technique, that’s the challenge, that’s what I like.”

Nature’s Oath

My spirit’s high!
In anticipation of your beauty
..of May fly
Your giddy lambs
And worker bee duty

I celebrate your re-birth
Your budding branches
And green shoots breaking sodden earth
Your natural oath
A promise kept
..of seeded growth
How deep you slept
“I, will arise again”, you said
Your Autumn vow taken
Spring’s whispered words
..”Winter Princess, awaken”

(written for my daughter Elle)

Midnight Caller

By the time you will have read this
I’ll have come, and gone
I will have touched you, upon
Your left shoulder
A gentle breeze of change
Marking this, your time and date of birth
And you, one year older
One day closer, to the bosom of my Earth
