Violeta By Declan Geraghty


Violeta me aul flower
Me aul chum
Me best mate
Your name is like the flower but you’re definitely no shrinking Violet
A flower that comes and goes in me life
Sometimes so far out of touch for me
Growing in Spain and shooting up through the soil of that culture
And I bring you back to Dublin for holidays
Then back to Madrid again
Where the rain falls mainly on the plane
I hope you grow into something that isn’t anything like me
But I hope I will be alongside you to see most of it
At least a large part of it anyway.
