The Turning of the Tide   Leave a comment

The turning of the tide

The turning of the tide

Effects all within its reach

Stretches far and wide.

When the time is right

On a specific moonlit night

Gravitation pulls

Everything in its sight.

 

The Rising, Easter Monday noon

Could not come too soon

For Freedom Fighters of the nation

Who didn’t need explanation

That the time was now

They just knew how

The tide was turning.

 

Indeed the tide was turned

Houses and homes burned

Nationhood declared

Not even children spared

Hard and cruel

Irish versus British rule

The Rising came and went

And a lot of blood was spent

In the turning of the tide.
