J. M. Synge Poems

  • 1.
    After looking at one of A.E.'s pictures

    Adieu, sweet Angus, Maeve and Fand,
    Ye plumed yet skinny Shee,
  • 2.
    Lord, confound this surly sister,
    Blight her brow with blotch and blister,
    Cramp her larynx, lung, and liver,
    In her guts a galling give her.
  • 3.
    Seven dog-days we let pass
    Naming Queens in Glenmacnass,
    All the rare and royal names
    Wormy sheepskin yet retains,
  • 4.
    Still south I went and west and south again,
    Through Wicklow from the morning till the night,
    And far from cities, and the sights of men,
    Lived with the sunshine, and the moon's delight.
  • 5.
    After reading the dates in a book of Lyrics.

    With Fifteen-ninety or Sixteen-sixteen
    We end Cervantes, Marot, Nashe or Green:
  • 6.
    We heard the thrushes by the shore and sea,
    And saw the golden star's nativity,
    Then round we went the lane by Thomas Flynn,
    Across the church where bones lie out and in;
  • 7.
    Beside a chapel I'd a room looked down,
    Where all the women from the farms and town,
    On Holy-days, and Sundays used to pass
    To marriages, and Christenings and to Mass.
  • 8.
    One night a score of Erris men,
    A score I'm told and nine,
    Said, “We'll get shut of Danny's noise
    Of girls and widows dyin'.

Andrew Lang Poem
Melville And Coghill - The Place Of The Little Hand
 by Andrew Lang

DEAD, with their eyes to the foe,
Dead, with the foe at their feet;
Under the sky laid low
Truly their slumber is sweet,
Though the wind from the Camp of the
Slain Men blow,
And the rain on the wilderness beat.
