'Liam Clancy, RIP'


God rest ye, Liam Clancy
You were a lovely boy
With magic in your music
And a way of spreading joy.

God rest ye, Liam Clancy
A true son of Erin's Isle
Your voice could break a thousand hearts
Or make a Nation smile!

God rest ye, Liam Clancy
The music was your own
I pray your Mercy Angels
Will carry you safely home.

God rest ye, Liam Clancy
I'll shed a lonely tear
We're poorer for you passing
But richer you were here!

God rest ye, Liam Clancy
Your music will not pass
And while I play your songs again
I'll raise a Parting Glass.

Rest Well, Old Friend

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
