J. M. Synge Score Poems
- 1. On An Anniversary
After reading the dates in a book of Lyrics.
With Fifteen-ninety or Sixteen-sixteen
We end Cervantes, Marot, Nashe or Green:
- 2. Dread
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.
- 3. Danny
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'.
