It seems only right that it is raining here in Tramore  as today marks the 14th year since the tragic loss of the crew of the Search and Rescue Helicopter in dense fog in the sand dunes in 1999

I would like to dedicate this famous poem, with and about love,  to the families of:

Sgt.  Patrick Mooney, Stamullen, Co. Meath ~ aged 34 years

Capt. Dave O’ Flaherty, Tullamore, Co. Offaly ~ aged 30 years

Capt. Michael Baker, Enniscorthy, Co. Wexford ~ aged 28 years

Cpl. Niall Byrne, Killiney, Co. Dublin ~ aged 25 years

i carry your heart with me

by

E. E. Cummings

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)
