Text Box: Welcome to First Editions

          Leafy-with-love banks and the green waters of the canal
          Pouring redemption for me, that I do
          The will of God, wallow in the habitual, the banal,
          Grow with nature again as before I grew.

                                                       Patrick Kavanagh {Canal Bank Walk}
