Cliffs of Moher...Our Journey Continues

The Cliffs of Moher

The cliffs of Moher, in Ireland

have green grasses on their tops.
A velvet mat of grasses
on 700 foot of rock.

The winds and waters carved 'em,
at their base Atlantic coast,
and of all my Irish scenery
I love these cliffs the most.

Oh, I loved a lass from Shannon,
and a beautiful girl was she,
and I loved her like these cliffs,
but, she ha' no thoughts of me.

So I stand atop these rugged rocks,
tormented high and low,
and think my quiet thoughts of her,
and down to where I'll go...

Willie D. Welch

The cliffs were breathtaking.  We thoroughly enjoyed our visit.  So far I think they might have been the favorite of my Irish sights.
