Treasure Island

Matt Mooney

(1943 / South Galway, Ireland.)

Agnes


Agnes, over the half door
Of their old thatched house,
Roguish eyes disarming,
Handed us some apples:
Coveted Beauty of Bath
From the tempting orchard,
Tasting as sweet as a kiss-
And it's still a taste I miss;
Freckled red and yellow,
Flushed white to the core;
Scholars in the afternoon,
After one, wanting more.

The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
