W: W:Her father sails a running-barge W:'Twixt Leamh-beag and The Druim, W:And on the lonely river-marge W:She clears his hearth for him. W:When she was only fairy-high W:Her gentle mother died, W:But dew-love keeps her memory W:Green on the Lagan side. W: W:And often when the beetle's horn W:Has lulled this eve to sleep W:I'll steal into her shieling lorn W:And through the doorway creep. W:There on the cricket's singing stone, W:She makes the bogwood fire, W:And hums in soft sweet undertone W:The songs of heart's desire W: W:Her welcome, like her love for me, W:Is from her heart within: W:Her warm kiss is felicity W:That knows no taint of sin. W:And, when I stir my foot to go, W:'Tis leaving love and light W:To feel the wind of longing blow W:From out the dark of night.
