Bluebells Not Blooming On The Ditch Of The Bohreen

Bluebells not blooming on the ditch of the bohreen by my first home from here far away
And a chilly breeze blowing from the Boggeraghs in green old Duhallow today
The leaves that were green in the Summer to the cool winds of late September turning brown
And the river by heavy rain swollen flowing bank high in the fields by the town
The barn swallows perched on electricity power lines are flocking for their long journey south
They fly for hours above the ocean their stamina never in doubt
They will return to breed in mid April in the coolness of the mid Spring
Just one of the wonders of Nature and the workings of Nature is a wonderful thing
In late September in the woods by the Boggeragh mountains birdsong is a thing one does not hear
And it can be quite cool, wet and windy in Duhallow in the Fall of the year
The rivers are often flowing bank high in the fields where the rushes in clusters do grow
In the home of the rook and the badger, the brown hare and silver backed crow
Bluebells not blooming on the ditch of the bohreen and the hills half cloaked in the rain fogs of gray
The cool winds are blowing in Duhallow and rain from there not far away.
