Yard Art 05:56
Migration 06:51
Where lagan stream sings lullabye There blows a lily fair The twilight gleam is all in her eyes The night is on her hair And like a lovesick lennan-shee She has my heart in thrall Nor life i own nor liberty For love is lord of all And often when the beetle's horn Have lulled the eve to sleep I steal unto the shealing lorn And through the dooring peep There on the cricket singing stone She spares the bogwood fire And hums in sad sweet undertones The songs of heart's desire Traditional Irish tune, lyrics by Joseph Campbell
