Warwick Dalzell

Warwick was born in Co Down and taught for a time in Northern Ireland. He sought his fortune in Africa, but returned home penniless. After another stint at the chalkface, he went to London. There he met Peter O'Loughlin who advised him to head for Australia, where he lived on and off for forty years. He is now a frequent pilgrim to the old country.

On A Clear Day by Warwick Dalzell

On a clear day
I can see the coast of Scotland,
But that’s not often.
On a clear day I can see the Mournes
And the drumlins of Down,
But even on a clear day
The wind smacks
My face
Just to remind me
That the clear day
Won’t last.
So make the most of it!
