W:Where Lagan streams sing lullabies
W:There grows a lily fair
W:The twilight is in her eye
W:The night is on her hair
W:And like a lovesick lennashee
W:She has my heart in thrall
W:No life have I nor liberty
W:For love is lord of all.
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: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: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.
