Since Maggie Went Away

Sean O'Casey
No more I'll stroll no more I'll stroll along a boreen Or see the scarlet poppies flame amid the corn green No more beneath the hedge I'll watch The butterflies at play For my heart is filled with woe with woe Since Maggie went away The sweet wild rose The sweet wild rose That loved to see us there And seemed to bid us hope, now droops And tells us to despair The linnet sings his song unheard Perched on a leafy spray Oh my heart is filled with woe with woe Since Maggie went away The gentle flowers the gentle flowers Their happy charm is fled And now they seem like blossoms, strewn Above the silent dead The symbols now of sorrow deep And life's swift sure decay For my heart is filled with woe with woe Since Maggie went away The heartless sun the heartless sun With splendour gilds the skies And mocks with smiling beams a heart That now can only sigh Shine on bright sun shine on while I Could curse thy proud display Oh my heart is filled with woe with woe Since Maggie went away Then welcome grief then welcome grief As warm true hearted friend For though all things befallst still Thou are grateful to the end ' And now I'll walk along with thee Till life turns into clay For my heart is filled with woe with woe Since Maggie went away For my heart is filled with woe with woe Since Maggie went away
