Padraic Colum (1881–1972).  Anthology of Irish Verse.  1922.
 
170. To Death
 
By Padraic Pearse (Translated by Thomas MacDonagh)
 
 
I HAVE not gathered gold;
The fame that I won perished;
In love I found but sorrow,
  That withered my life.
 
Of wealth or of glory        5
I shall leave nothing behind me
(I think it, O God, enough!)
  But my name in the heart of a child.
