Old Clara In Duhallow

To climb to the steel cross on it's summit no claim to renown
Old Clara in Duhallow that ever looks down
On the green countryside where the waterways meet
And the streets and the houses of the Town of Millstreet

As a challenge to famous climbers it will never be known
But Clara for it's amazing views with the best does hold it's own
From it's bracken clad slopes on a clear day quite amazing scenery
Of the countryside of Duhallow and Sliabh Luachra beyond Rathmore and Knocknagree

To the left Kippagh, Caherbarnagh and Gortavehy with it's face of stone
And the legendary breasts of Anu known as the Paps of Shrone
One of the old hills overlooking the green border countryside
From the slopes of Clara Mountain one can see far and wide

Though for my long gone youth i have shed my last tears
And old Clara in Duhallow i have not seen for years
In my visualizations i often climb it again
Fond memories of what was with me does remain.
