Bernard O Donoghue

Bernard O Donoghue the County Cork born poet
He is a person of literary note
From Cullen in Duhallow he is famed Worldwide
Far beyond the borders of his home countryside

An Oxford Professor of Medieval English to poetic renown he did rise
On his winning of the prestigious Whitbread Poetry Prize
Amongst the great poets of the World he takes his place
As the pride of his clan and a credit to his race

One of the major poets of the literary World of today
With words Bernard O Donoghue does have a way
In poetic circles his is an acclaimed name
He stands with poetry's best on the summit of fame

He has earned the title of a poetic great
Such beauty in his words Bernard does create
In Worldwide literary circles one held in high esteem
But humble in his ways is how he does seem

From the home-place of the late Edward Walsh another literary man to celebrate
With the best poets of the World Bernard O Donoghue does rate
Though at least four decades beyond his physical prime
His poetic legend has grown through the Seasons of time.
