A Green Desert Father Vol.6 - Launching Satellite Moon
In March 2013, Richard Mc Sweeney, a self-originating lyrical philosopher of Éire brought out a 794-paged hardback titled A Green Desert Father having as its subtitle Philosophical converse of an Árd Rí (High King) of Ireland. This contemporary collectable is a chronologically compiled anthology dating from January 2011 to February 2013 of original narratives, poems, fictional dialogues, and scenic photographs. It boldly addresses several universal themes such as love, freedom, morality, human trafficking, children and spousal abuse, religion, politics, fanaticism, prophecy, cosmology, art, fashion, music, and the esoteric.
There are conversations in it with for instance Anne Boleyn, Matthias Stormberger, Michel de Nostredame, Edgar Cayce, James Joyce, Joseph Goebbels, Greta Garbo, The Congregatio pro Doctrina Fidei, Dalai Lama, The Holy Qur’an, André Rieu, Homayra Sellier, Richard Dawkins, Georg Gänswein, and Patrick Stewart just to name a few.
Aside from being a cosmopolitan work it is a one of a kind personal social commentary on early 21st century Ireland as it contains over seventy pages devoted exclusively to the author’s historic and courageous bid to become the 9th President of Ireland.
The entire work is being made available exclusively here on Shopify in 13 short volumes. The scenic photographs of the print work are not included.
This 6th volume contains make-believe conversations with the following people, animal, and entities. Each one was inspired and composed simultaneously in one sitting.

“Utopia looks lovely on a morning like this,
doesn’t it, Richard?
It always looks lovely, Mary, so it does.
It does, doesn’t it, Richard?
Yes; yes, it does, Mary.
You are great, Mary the way you daily drop in
on the living alone; to the living on their own,
n’ give them good words, n’ a hand with
their few groceries, n’ simple necessities.
Sure, Richard isn’t that the neighbourly thing
to be doing as we are living the life?
It surely is, Mary, it surely is at that.
Age, Richard brings greater understanding.
And by yond way in the northeast white cloud sky,
see I; yes, see I a three masted schooner in full sail.
Oh, she is an absolute beauty, all attired in sunlit gold.
And I am thinking she will be dropping anchor in the bay
way out over ‘yond L’hôtel Byblos Saint Tropez.
Strolling along by the banks of a shimmering riverlet,
n’ I can see the speckled trout there within,
n’ they enjoying life as if this were all the days of days
that were ever to be given for the living of life.
And at times I am hearing a calling from an olive tree grove,
n’ in my mind I can see strolling a woman,
n’ she with auburn hair calling to me to come on over,
n’ to be with her in wordplay n’ tea.
Thinking it strange, n’ how can it be, seeing I know
well there to be no olive tree grove in the village country.
Her voice is sweet n’ comes to me as from the shores
of the Odyssean voyage, but no harm from her do I feel,
save I am with some confusion slight as to know
who she might be, n’ why she is calling me . . .” Utopia n’ Saint Tropez
