Cathleen ni Houlihan(1902)

‘Many that are red-cheeked will now be pale-cheeked’

who goes with fergus
‘Who Goes with Fergus?’

Who will drive with Fergus now,

And pierce the deep wood’s woven shade,

And dance upon the level shore?

Young man lift up your russet brow,

And lift your tender eyelids, maid,

And brood on hopes and fears no more.

Through hollow lands and hilly lands

And kiss her lips and take her hands;

And walk among long dappled grass,

And pluck till time and times are done

The silver apples of the moon,

The golden apples of the sun.
