Tho' strong the marbour grief and woe, for those who'll ne'er return; How weak, alas ! the pangs the show, with which our hearts are torn.



Ye youthful sons of Erin, weep,

No-strike the sounding harp aloud
Oh! yes-- let tears be shed

And sweep the chords along,
Your two lov'd chiefs in silence sleep Their Ghosts delighted, from their cloud
Rest with the mighty dead ;

Shall hear the patriot song :
Go hang your barps on willow trees Erewhile, which fir'd their souls with pride,
Where night her shadow wings:

The song of liberty,
Some Sylph, or Fairy in the brecze

And toss'd the echoes far and wide
May lightly touch the strings.

Let Erin's sons be free., •VicePresident and Treasurer of the 'Juvenile sons of Eriz.'
