Teagans Selected Poetry


Again I take great pleasure in welcoming you to my garret and judging by your emails and comments I know there are a lot of people who enjoy my poetry selections. Thank you for your creative comments and suggestions about the poetry you would like to see here.
Three years ago I stated that poetry has such a diverse following and covers so many moods that we are not always ready for certain poems sometimes, but on another day, or in a different mood those poems suit perfectly. For this reason I am suggesting that you bookmark this place and return and read the poems I choose each week. They are after all intended for your pleasure and inspiration as well as mine.
Each week one of these poems is posted in the Tir na nOg. Please feel free to post comments there about how you felt about it, and links where further information about each one of these poems can be found.

Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Only then can we realise that money can not be eaten
