"You poor take courage. You rich take care. The world was made a common treasury for everyone to share."
This is another selection from Dick Gaughan's classic 1981 album "Handful of Earth."
This is a powerful song encapsulating the beauty and sadness of Irish culture and history (not sure about the montage). Dick Gaughan is my absolute favorite Celtic performer. He is incredibly expressive and thoughtful in his technique. I will be posting a few more. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Me: What does m-o-s-t spell?
Me: What does h-o-s-t spell?
Me: What does p-o-s-t spell?
Me: What do you put in a toaster?
Me: Um.....well..OK, but what else do you put in a toaster?
LD: Oh! Toast!
Me: (a relieved smile) Really?
Me: Why would you put toast in a toaster?
LD: Because "toast" is in its name - TOAST-er!
Me: Hmmm. But why put toast in a toaster if it's already toast?
LD: (questioning, suspicious look and then...) OH!
Me: So what do you put in a toaster???
