Featured Review

Incredibly touching poem David and so eloquently read in person. I've heard and read most of the stories, happy and sad about the two divided traditions within Northern Ireland but this one is up there with the best ballads, songs and poems I can think off.

You show how love can conquer even the most extreme sectarian divide, and sadly how the bigoted refuse to allow this to happen, by taking their murderous intent even into a holy place during wedlock !

And indeed, as if the gravity of their actions were not serious enough, the pathetic scene afterwards when the bodies are separated, destined to lie apart within their own religious sanctuaries!

Gratifying that the great Redeemer, uplifts them in spiritual unison away from the anarchy below to be together for all eternity!

Astounding effort, so glad I came across this remarkable piece of poetry ! 'The pen can do so much more than the sword' !

Beautiful, beautiful and simply beautiful poem. This one just reminded me of the great story telling style " The famous Paget Style". Great piece!!

Heart rending and uplifting. You know how to expertly evoke emotion so well Mr. Paget. I'm not sure how I feel about being scared to insomnia then crying in my beer by the same man. Well it proves how much mastery you have in the art.

This was absolutely breathtaking! I love this one so much, and hearing you read it yourself was an incredible touch. I must say, I prefer listening to you read it over reading it myself. Very well done, David!

The mental picture of the two lover is brought to live on seeing you read it aloud, i also appreciate the conflict of religion which is juxtapose with love. Although she was told that is would never hold there is persistence. Love overcome all, once in build on the solid rock.
