Wild cries the Winter, and we walk song-haunted Over the moors and by the thundering falls, Or where the dirge of a brave past is chaunted In dolorous dusks by immemorial walls Though rains may thrash on us, the great mists blind us, And lightning rend the pine-tree on the hill, Yet we are strong, yet shall the morning find us Children of tempest all unshaken still
Monadh 10:20
A darkling violet, fringed anew With light that on the mountains soar, A dusky flame on tranquil shores; Kindling the summits as they grow In audience to the skies that call, Ineffable in rest and all The hills slipped over each on each Till all their changing shadows died.
Bròn 12:21 video
There's deer upon the mountain, There's sheep along the glen, The forests hum with feather, But where are now the men? Here's but my mother's garden Where soft the footsteps fall, My folk are quite forgotten, But the nettle's over all. O! black might be that ruin Where my fathers dwelt so long, And nothing hide the shame of it, The ugliness and wrong; The cabar and the corner-stone Might bleach in wind and rains, But for the gentle nettle That took such a courtier's pains. The friends are all departed, The hearth-stone is black and cold, And sturdy grows the nettle On the place beloved of old.
