9 10 jeremiah joseph callanan The strong rope of fate For this young neck is twining. My strength is departed; My cheek sunk and sallow; While I languish in chains, In the gaol of Cluanmeala. No boy in the village Was ever yet milder, I’d play with a child, And my sport would be wilder. I’d dance without tiring From morning till even, And the goal-ball I’d strike To the lightning of Heaven. At my bed-foot decaying, My hurlbat is lying, Through the boys of the village My goal-ball is flying; My horse ’mong the neighbours Neglected may fallow,— While I pine in my chains, In the goal of Cluanmeala.

From Loughmoe to yellow Dunanore There was fear; the traders of Tralee Gathered up their golden store, And prepared to flee; For, in ship and hall, from night till morning Showed the first faint beamings of the sun, All the foreigners heard the warning Of the Dreaded One! ’ Self-conceited idiots! thus Ravingly to prate! Not for base-born higgling Saxon trucksters Ring laments like those by shore and sea! Not for churls with souls of hucksters Waileth our Banshee! For the high Milesian race alone Ever flows the music of her woe!

Ah, woe is me! Already we bewail in vain Their fatal fall! And Erin, once the Great and Free, Now vainly mourns her breakless chain, And iron thrall! Then, daughter of O’Donnell! dry Thine overflowing eyes, and turn Thy heart aside; For Adam’s race is born to die, And sternly the sepulchral urn Mocks human pride! Look not, nor sigh, for earthly throne, Nor place thy trust in arm of clay— But on thy knees Uplift thy soul to God alone, For all things go their destined way As He decrees. Embrace the faithful Crucifix, And seek the path of pain and prayer Thy Saviour trod!
