Barry Cornwall Song Poems

  • 1.
    WE are born; we laugh; we weep;
    We love; we droop; we die!
    Ah! wherefore do we laugh or weep?
    Why do we live, or die?
  • 2.
    Here's a health to thee, Mary,
    Here's a health to thee;
    The drinkers are gone,
    And I am alone,
  • 3.

    The dews hang thick on the fringed thorn,
    And the frost shrinks back, like a beaten hound,
    Under the steaming, steaming ground.
