Ireland In May

The place  where i first saw the  light of day
From where i now live far away
And yet the memories with me stay
Of Ireland in the month of May

When the lark above the mountain sing
Such joy such thoughts to me does bring
A fading musical speck in the gray sky
He sing as to the clouds he fly

The old fields lush and green from recent showers
Are  looking resplendent in their Nature's flowers
And  cattle out of wintering sheds of eating silage and hay
On nourishing Spring grass gain weight by the day

Some old  memories with us do remain
The song of the robin i hear again
And the dipper singing in the rill
That babbles downland from the hill

The past in the forever gone
Yet some memories in me do live on
And perhaps till death with me will stay
Of Ireland in the month of May.
