To the Castle of Donegal
CASTLE of Donegal! both green and gray, Like an old poet; where thine outworks lay A sessions-house, and barracks for police Lie in thy shadow. If from ivied peace We could recall thee, and revive to-day The men whom thy crazed walls, their children, cease Almost to recollect, how we and they Would wonder! How their wonder would increase When by their antique customs they were driven (As soon would happen to those chiefs of yore) To feel our unromantic forms of power, Police and statute law. Therefore, still riven And roofless be thou; strength is law no more; The times that suited thee are gone, thank Heaven!
