Song: ‘O, it was out by Donnycarney’
By James Joyce (1882–1941)
O, IT was out by Donnycarney,
  When the bat flew from tree to tree,
My love and I did walk together;
  And sweet were the words she said to me!
Along with us the summer wind        5
  Went murmuring—O, happily!—
But softer than the breath of summer
  Was the kiss she gave to me.
