    How is that the launch, I was there a few months ago?

    excellent by the way, would really recommend it.

      Ditto. I visited the museum last year: is it not the launch of the 1916 commemoration stuff?
      It’s a lovely park to stroll around as well.

    LITTLE LAD OF THE TRICKS

    by Padraig Pearse.

    Little lad of the tricks,
    Full well I know
    That you have been in mischief:
    Confess your fault truly.

    I forgive you, child
    Of the soft red mouth:
    I will not condemn anyone
    For a sin not understood.

    Raise your comely head
    Till I kiss your mouth:
    If either of us is the better of that
    I am the better of it.

    There is a fragrance in your kiss
    That I have not found yet
    In the kisses of women
    Or in the honey of their bodies.

    Lad of the grey eyes,
    That flush in thy cheek
    Would be white with dread of me
    Could you read my secrets.

    He who has my secrets
    Is not fit to touch you:
    Is not that a pitiful thing,
    Little lad of the tricks?

    Big crowd there in front of a very big building.
    So it must be something very important.
    With the president as well.

    Away, away, in the land of the little people, the faries.
    When say faries, i of course mean the little folk.
