The Ballader Of Ballymac

A fine example of natural beauty is a
Blackbird in the townland of
Ballymagroarty on the verge of
The adopted city of St. Colm Cille.

Unlike a blackbird along the roads of
Slane chirping similar to the piper of
Hamelin our blackie chirps from within
The local hedgerows.

From a beak which is also the means
Of food gathering around local fields
And roads not far from the Foyle river
In the county of Derry.

A part of God’s gift of music while
Strolling for this blackie of the hedges
Is known as the ‘Ballader of Ballymac’
Arising from the contribution he makes.

As a part of nature’s choir Blackie can
Joyfully be heard most days across the
Local landscape and not far from the
Fertile fields of the county of Donegal.
