Clinton Scollard (Клинтон Сколлард)


Man and Maid


"I know a lad in Leitrim, I know a lad," said she,
"I know a lad in Leitrim would give his heart for me!"

"I know a maid in Mayo, I know a maid," said he,
"I know a maid in Mayo would give her heart to me!"

"Go to your maid in Mayo, go to your maid," cried she;
"Go to your maid in Mayo, for all--for all of me!"

"Go to your lad in Leitrim, go to your lad," cried he,
"Go to your lad in Leitrim, for all--for all of me!"

"And yet--and yet--" she faltered, "and yet--and yet," blushed she,
"That lad may stay in Leitrim! It 's here I 'd rather be!"

"And yet--and yet--" he echoed, "and yet--and yet--" smiled he,
"That maid may stay in Mayo. It 's there I 'd have her be!"

'T is merry down in Kerry beside the laughing sea;
'T is merry down in Kerry when man and maid agree!
