(Maidenhead, Berkshire)

For Michael

The song of the summer is sung by the trees
Borne on the wind by the birds and the bees
Echoed in music of streams rushing there
Singing come home OH ! man from Kildare.

The mountains are clothed in mantles of blue
Green are the valleys with shamrock anew
"Cead Mile Failty" his old friends say there
Welcome home OH! man from Kildare.
