Irish Girl
Layla Gillick

Born in America
But truly Irish

I’ve watched the waves of
Bray Beach crash over the rocks

I’ve eaten the fresh summery
taste of the traditional 99

I’ve seen the rainpour
of the summer and the
snowfall of the winter

I’ve heard the many varieties
of Irish accents.

Oh I could go on,
But I think that this proves
I am an
Irish Girl.
