Irish Poetry Gift

Beautiful handmade Irish gifts for the poet in your life. A wonderful Irish poetry gift.

The famous Irish Poems used for your pencils are:


“Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet: But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly because you tread on my dreams. “- by WB Yeats


“When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep; How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face; And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars. “- by WB Yeats


“Oh, call it by some better name, For Friendship sounds too cold, While Love is now a worldly flame, Whose shrine must be of gold: And Passion, like the sun at noon, That burns o’er all he sees, Awhile as warm will set as soon- Then call it none of these. Imagine something purer far, More free from stain of clay Than Friendship, Love, or Passion are, Yet human, still as they: And if thy lip, for love like this, No mortal word can frame, Go, ask of angels what it is, And call it by that name!” by Thomas Moore


“My dove, my beautiful one, Arise, arise! The night-dew lies Upon my lips and eyes. The odorous winds are weaving a music of sighs: Arise, arise, My dove, my beautiful one! I wait by the cedar tree, My sister, my love, White breast of the dove, My breast shall be your bed. The pale dew lies Like a veil on my head. My fair one, my fair dove, Arise, arise!” by James Joyce


“DRY be that tear, my gentlest love, Be hushed that struggling sigh; Nor seasons, day, nor fate shall prove, More fixed, more true, than I. Hushed be that sigh, be dry that tear; Cease, boding doubt; cease, anxious fear— Dry be that tear. Ask’st thou how long my love shall stay, When all that’s new is past? How long? Ah! Delia, can I say, How long my life shall last? Dry be that tear, be hushed that sigh; At least I’ll love thee till I die” by Richard Brinsley Sheridan (shortened version of the whole poem)


You can have your poetry pencils gift wrapped in a page from an Irish Atlas, the page will be picked at random and the wrapping is finished with a gift tag and bakers twine.

    Yes, I was very pleased with the purchase. They make an excellent present especially at Christmas. In fact I purchased 3 sets for Christmas presents. They are not expensive but the presentation , packaging & quality is superb.
    Continued success to the Irish company at home & abroad.

About Cuando Creator

Hi, my name is Vanessa Scott-Hayward, the designer and maker behind six0six design.

I work with paper and a vast array of vintage materials. I love using materials that have a history to them and a lot of the designs in my business stem from this. From my map artworks to my music Shakespeare pencils.

Creating personalised handmade gifts I get to be a part of so many stories, and I treasure each one.

Being a creative maker is not just what I do but an essential part of who I am.
