Poems (Classic Reprint)

Brother Clement


Excerpt from Poems

A Vision of the Past.

I stood by Shannon's bank and gazed
Upon the angry tide
Which foamed and swelled and rolled fast by
In all its lordly pride!
'Twas midnight, and the feeble moon
Fell full upon the stream,
As buried thoughts of days long gone
Stole o'er me like a dream!

Lo, there the gallant Sarsfield stood,
With gleaming sword in hand,
And by him, drawn in battle-line,
His gallant trusty band!
Just then, as blew the trumpets blast,
A loud, wild shout is raised,
And round me swelled the din of war,
And wall and rampart blazed!

Through Garryowen - old Garryowen,
Bang, bang the bombshell flew!
Though Garryyowen - loved Garryowen
There's life-blood streaming too!
