The Aubane River

In the valley in view of Mushera above Millstreet Town
The old Aubane River in flood waters of brown
From waters of the high ground in streamlet and drain
Flowing with a loud babble swollen by recent thunder rain
Generations of people to Aubane have come to and from gone
But the old ageless river forever flows on
It has flowed for centuries before the first people came
To live in the valley that then did not have a name
It has flowed forever and will forever more
On it's journey to the Blackwater to the Atlantic shore
A waterway that has inspired song, story and rhyme
That was very old in the dinosaur time
And the dinosaurs forever from Aubane are long gone
But the old waterway as ever flows on.
