The Words Upon The Egg

Now that it’s out in the real world (in the glorious grounds of TCD, right beside the Book Of Kells) and there are pictures of it knocking around online and in the papers I’ve had loads of people asking what is written around my egg that I designed for The Big Egg Hunt Dublin.

Bidding is open if you fancy buying it (!) with all the proceeds going to the *VERY* worthy cause that is the Jack And Jill Foundation:



She is the summer sun,

Falling blue, gently but relentlessly

Against eternal sandstone,

She is the reason dead green shutters have undone,

Flung everything within them to the day,

She makes ruins glow,

Folds shadows under waiting stone,

Even, unbeknownst to her, from half a world away.
