Here you will find the Poem Men On Islands of poet Padraic Colum
CAN it be that never more Men will grow on Islands? Ithaka and Eriskey, Iceland and Tahiti! Must the engines he has forged Raven so for spaces That the Islands dwindle down, Dwindle down! Pots that shelve the tap-root's growth? Must it be that never more Men will flower on Islands? Crete and Corsica, Mitylene, Aran and lona!
