    Muldoon replaces the rhapsodic rhythms and rhymes of free verse with an almost subliminal distribution of para-chimes in imploding sonnets. This is important to point out, as in case of serious injury it is in stark contrast to most modern legal systems. Ireland has never had an accepted "High King", although many vainglorious pretenders may have aspired to that goal. Once upon a time far back in the mist of time Ireland was known as the land of saints and scholars. In such cases the physician was entitled to a greater share of the fine—one half.

One such cailecha was Gobnait, a woman who settled in West Cork and established a convent, or community of women. Not only did the Irish import books and copy them in their monasteries, but they took them with them wherever they went.

From under the sheltering arms of the tree arose an owl, feathers silver like the moon, soft as the first breath of morning wind, with eyes like obsidian that caught and shimmered in the flickering flames of the fire. An overwhelming victory of Scottish arms set the stage for years of independence which in turn had important social consequences which remain in play today.
