In Mountleader Today

In view of old Clara from here far away
The nesting birds sing in Mountleader today
The hawthorns are in their white blooms of the May
To describe such beauty are there words for to say
On grass lush and green from the recent Spring rain
The cattle grow fatter and weight they do gain
Nature's beautiful flowers in abundance to be seen
And bluebells in bloom on the ditch of the bohreen
In pursuit of flying insects across the gray sky
The dark barn swallows do chirp as they fly
The house sparrows familiar in their brown and gray
Carry small feathers to barn rafters to line their nests of hay
And Summer quite near on the last week of May
Where the nesting birds sing in Mountleader today.
