And often when the beetle’s horn, has lulled the eve to sleep
I steal into her sheiling torn, and through the dooring peep;
There on the cricket’s singing stone, she stirs the bog-wood fire,
And hums in sad, sweet and undertone, the song of hearts desire.

Her welcome like her love for me, is from the heart within
Her warm kiss is felicity, that knows no taint or sin;
When she was only fairy small, her gentle mother died
But true love keeps her memory warm, by Lagan’s silver side.

I steal into her sheiling torn, and through the dooring peep;
There on the cricket’s singing stone, she stirs the bog-wood fire,
And hums in sad, sweet and undertone, the song of hearts desire.

Her welcome like her love for me, is from the heart within
Her warm kiss is felicity, that knows no taint or sin;
When she was only fairy small, her gentle mother died
But true love keeps her memory warm, by Lagan’s silver side.
