Here are a few poems about the Land from which my great-grandfather came to America. He was a Thomas, my grandfather was a Thomas, my father was a Thomas, and my first son was a Thomas. Ireland, the land of my roots, is the place I want most to see before I die. Perhaps some day. NOTE:I got to visit Ireland in 2004 as part of my trip around the world. You can see hundreds of photos of Ireland on my One Orbit page and thousands more photos from the whole trip. Click Here.
