THE MELODY OF THE HARP
2.
[The chief dejected, with drooping brow, Aroused, erected, is hearkening now, The while abhorrent of shame and fear Thy tuneful torrent invades his ear. He calls his clan : " Who will and can The slogan follow in Valour's van ? " Then forward thunder the gallant Gael And death and plunder are o'er the Pale.]
3-
The child is calling through fever dreams; When, softly falling as faery streams, Thy magic soontree* his soul shall sweep Into the country of blessed sleep. To ears that heed not their longing moan Let lovers plead not with words alone, But seek thine aid. The haughtiest maid Will yield by thy sweet influence swayed.
* Lullaby. H. 48GS.
