Photographer's Note

Once, when all seemed darkest and forlorn,
when lonely Erin wept in streams of blood;
in the darkness a shining star was born,
and radiant light burst forth just like a flood.

O blessed sanguine Star of Erin’s Isle,
with ardour and intensity divine,
you lit Her Night with your florescent smile
and warmed Her with that fiery heart of Thine.

But nothing in this world is without scars,
not even the candescent shining stars:
they also will fall into the abyss,

swallowed by a frigid Mouth of Flowers,
where darkness greedily the light devours;
and leave us naught but memories of bliss.
