The Song Book
261
Dear Harp of my Country! farewell to thy numbers,
This sweet wreath of song is the last we shall twine; Go,—sleep, with the sunshine of Fame on thy slumbers,
Till touch'd by some hand less unworthy than mine. If the pulse of the patriot, soldier, or lover,
Have throbb'd at our lay, 'tis thy glory alone; I was but as the wind, passing heedlessly over,
And all the wild sweetness I waked was thy own!
Words by Moore. Tune (from Bunting) Kate Tyrrel.
CCI
CHARMED BY THE LUSTRE OF THINE EYES
That heart confided in thy smiles Love smit, yet taught not lovers' wiles, And hail'd thee in life's morning hour, Its early star, its opening flower.
Words (from the original Irish) by Miss Balfour. Tune The Captivating Youth. From Bunting's Music of Ireland.
