Eileen Aroon

Gerald Griffin
I know a valley fair, Eileen Aroon* (a Rúin = my love/my dearest) I know a cottage there, Eileen Aroon Far in the valley shade I know a tender maid Flower of the hazel glade, Eileen Aroon Who in the song so sweet, Eileen Aroon Who in the dance so fleet, Eileen Aroon Dear are her charms to me, dearer her laughter free Dearest her constancy, Eileen Aroon Were she no longer true, Eileen Aroon What would her lover do, Eileen Aroon Fly with a broken chain, far o'er the sounding main Never to love again, Eileen Aroon Youth will in time decay, Eileen Aroon Beauty must fade away, Eileen Aroon Castles are sacked in war, chieftains are scattered far Truth is a fixed star, Eileen Aroon
