I Heard A Cry Outside My Window - Poem by Tomás Ó Cárthaigh

I heard a cry outside my window
Of a lovers anguished dispair
As with her beloved she quarelled
It was but a sound faint out there...

His voice could not be heard
As her sobs grew louder still
To his unheard - by - me - responses
Drew a retort twice as shrill

The voices in time disappeared
A on their way they went
And I, not caring much
Went to sleep again, content.
