O Lovely Head (Author: Pádraic H. Pearse)
- 1] O lovely head of the woman that I loved,
2] In the middle of the night I remember thee;
3] But reality returns with the sun's whitening,
4] Alas, that the slender worm gnaws thee to-night.
- 5] Beloved voice, that wast low and beautiful,
6] Is it true that I heard thee in my slumbers!
7] Or is the knowledge true that tortures me?
8] My grief, the tomb hath no sound or voice?
