Eileen Aroon

When, like the dawning day
  Eileen Aroon
Love sends his early ray
  Eileen Aroon
What makes his dawning glow
Changeless through joy and woe
Only the constant know
  Eileen Aroon

Were she no longer true
  Eileen Aroon
What would her lover do
  Eileen Aroon
Fly with a broken chain
Far o'er the bounding main
Never to love again
  Eileen Aroon

Youth must in time decay
  Eileen Aroon
Beauty must fade away
  Eileen Aroon
Castles are sacked in war
Chieftains are scattered far
Truth is a fixed star
  Eileen Aroon

words translated by Gerald Griffin (1803-1840)
from the Irish of Carrol O'Daly (14th Century)
tune: Robin Adair by Lady Caroline Keppel
