THE CLOAK, THE BOAT, AND THE SHOES'

WHAT do you make so fair and bright?' 'I make the cloak of Sorrow:

O lovely to see in all men's sight Shall be the cloak of Sorrow,

In all men's sight.'

'What do you build with sails for flight?' 'I build a boat for Sorrow:

O swift on the seas all day and night Saileth the rover Sorrow,

All day and night.'

'What do you weave with wool so white?' 'I weave the shoes of Sorrow:

Soundless shall be the footfall light
In all men's ears of Sorrow,

Sudden and light.'


THE MEDITATION OF THE OLD FISHERMAN

 

 YOU waves, though you dance by my feet like children at play, Though you glow and you glance, though you purr and you dart;

 In the Junes that were warmer than these are, the waves were more gay,

 When I was a boy with never a crack in my heart.

 The herring are not in the tides as they were of old;

 My sorrow! for many a creak gave the creel in the-cart

 That carried the take to Sligo town to be sold,

And ah, you proud maiden, you are not so fair when his oar

 Is heard on the water, as they were, the proud and apart,

 Who paced in the eve by the nets on the pebbly shore,

 When I was a boy with never a crack in my heart.
