But through ruddy the berry and snowy the flower
That brighten together the arbutus bower
Perfuming and blooming through sunshine and shower
Give me her bright lips and her laugh’s pearly dower.

Alas! fruit and blossom shall lie dead on the lea
And time’s jealous fingers dim your young charms, Machree
But unranging, unchanging you’ll still cling to me
Like the evergreen leaf to the arbutus tree.
