So that the white in me turns black
Before I shed off a single milk teeth
If I vacate that soothsome seat

Your feet must struggle; in such bold ascent

The water dripping towards my eardrums

Morning Express

Along the wind-swept platform, pinched and white,
The travellers stand in pools of wintry light,
Offering themselves to morn's long, slanting arrows.
The train's due; porters trundle laden barrows.

On her milk-white twinkling feet.

Had ta'en his last leave of the weeping morn,
Rose-cheeked Adonis hied him to the chase;
Hunting he loved, but love he laughed to scorn.

Because they are full of money and you go into them and all

Or maybe a sound like the wind in the trees on the hills,

with the guests sitting orderly to listen, while the table is loaded

No Better Land Than This

If I knew a better country in this glorious world today
Where a man's work hours are shorter and he's drawing bigger pay,
If the Briton or the Frenchman had an easier life than mine,
I'd pack my goods this minute and I'd sail across the brine.

Well breakfast black coffee one slice of dry toast no butter no jelly no jam

The Grief Of A Girl's Heart

O Donall og, if you go across the sea, bring myself with you and do not forget it; and you will have a sweetheart for fair days and market days, and the daughter of the King of Greece beside you at night. It is late last night the dog was speaking of you; the snipe was speaking of you in her deep marsh. It is you are the lonely bird through the woods; and that you may be without a mate until you find me.

You promised me, and you said a lie to me, that you would be before me where the sheep are flocked; I gave a whistle and three hundred cries to you, and I found nothing there but a bleating lamb.

Have known three centuries, poets sing,
Of dalliance with a demon thing.

Mc'clusky's Nell

In Mike Maloney's Nugget bar the hooch was flowin' free,

An roarin' rageful warning when the boys got overwild,
When peekin' through the double door he spied a tiny child.
