Product description

Irish Poems will both enchant and delight the reader with expressive lilting verses that capture the essence of Ireland over the past few centuries. It is beautifully illustrated with charming depictions of wee leprechauns and Irish folk. A lyrical rhyming style characterises many of the included poems, making the words flow across the page and over the tongue. Several exude the intrinsic flavour of Ireland, past and present, real and imagined, through the depiction of mystical creatures such as fairies and leprechauns. Others speak of the awe-inspiring beauty of nature; and still others tell poetic tales of legendary figures such as the famous sweet Mollie Malone. More than twenty great writers are included in this delightful collection of poems. All are originally from Ireland and include such great names as Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, and William Butler Yeats. This enchanting collection of familiar and new poems for children is a pleasure to read aloud and a family treasure for generations to come.
