To rid the world of penitence:
Malicious Angel, who still dost
My soul such subtile violence!

Of eyes that pierced the deep!
Oh human night!

A voice by the waters,

Oh! what are the winds?
...

5.

Heartens the host of Innisfail;
Their dream is of the swift sword-thrust;
The lightning glory of the Gael.
...
