THE BALLAD OF MONK'S LANE
by LUKA BLOOM

Refuge
Refuge
(2017)
Between the old head of Kinsale
And Clonakilty town
Where monks once prayed
Honey bees were buzzing around

Around Courtmacsherry
Mist rolls in from the sea
Curls around the turf smoke
Sucking in people like me

When you cross the threshold
You're dancing in the flame
Love's got your number
You've landed in Monk's Lane
