Frequency Hoping

The tower in the woods,

Radio Athlone, Radio Eireann, 2RN

When I was young, I saw the woods,

bluebells swaying in the wind

Two towers hovered above,

the tall trees of a small child

Two monstrous towers,

reached overhead;


Connecting the midlands,

with everywhere else

Families listened to the wireless

The channels read,

Moscow, Marseille, Munich,

Budapest, Berlin, Helsinki, Athlone.

Our forrest has been cut down

and one of the towers gone

But history will always read,

Rome, Marseille, Bruxelles, Athlone.
