Patrick Kavanagh

The Stone of the Tourists

Yankee tourist
He could sure
Talk to deafen a mill-race.

From his watch-chain
Platinum-set
Hung
A chip of the Blarney Stone.

I accept that.
He had been suspended
Head-downwards
Two men holding his heels,
He had put his snout
To the stone mentioned
So favourably by Father [Prout].
