Teagans Selected Poetry


I would like to thank you for visiting me again. Your emails and suggestions have all been duly noted and I hope this year we will provide just as great a pleasure as we have in the past. Please don't stop sending me your creative comments and suggestions about the poetry you would like to see here.
Nine 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 weekend one of these poems is posted in the Tir na nOg. Please feel free to post comments there about how you felt about it> Often you will also see 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
