I live in Dublin, Ireland. Sometimes. Most times I live in my head, quite unaware of my surroundings – if you know what I mean… If you succeed in tracking Sean Walsh, please let me know, ok? I've been searching for him for years…

‘Past the inn with ne’er a vacancy,

the raucous revelry, receding…

 

Around the back to the stables.

Animals stirring… then still.

Breathing warmth

in the cold night air.

 

Aloft, a movement of wings.

 

In a makeshift crib

on a bed of straw

under a thousand stars,

a new-born babe…

 

gentled to her breast

by a young Jewess…

 

And by their side

a quiet man of few words,

wondering…
