Treasure Island

edward kermode


I am the smiles of Ireland
Full spirited and fine
To fill the eyes with paradise
And warm the heart like wine.

I am the songs of Ireland
A'wafting through the mist
And rising up to heaven's gate
And by the blarney kissed.

I am the dance of Ireland
All glorious to behold
Our maids to fiddle, pipe and drum
Our dancing maids of gold.

I am the bards of Ireland
With Ireland's honours heaped
From distant times my voice still heard
In Celtic mysteries steeped.

I am the brave of Ireland
Defiant cries and sharp
A'marching forth to meet the foe
With song and joyful harp.

I am the heart of Ireland
Strong spirited and free
E'er yearning to express itself
In wondrous minstrelsy.

I am the soul of Ireland
A'winging 'cross the weald
That never yet could find its rest
Nor e'er to bondage yield.

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
