The Shadow at the Door – Niall McDevitt

X marks this spot
He tried and did succeed
On his stone of free speech
We gathered around for a plot
Kites sailed; that whispering need
Lessons learned that he did teach                        

A gaggle of friends on the heath
Musicians played a happy tune
Celebrated his wonder & full years
Breathed fresh air; laid a wreath
To let us roam under sun & moon
Gave us joy, allayed our fears
