To a Beloved Child (Author: Pádraic H. Pearse)
- 1] Laughing mouth, what tortures me is
2] That thou shalt be weeping;
3] Lovely face, it is my pity
4] That thy brightness shall grow grey.
- 5] Noble head, thou art proud,
6] But thou shalt bow with sorrow;
7] And it is a pitiful thing I forbode for thee
8] Whenever I kiss thee.
