This building situated some miles from Donegal
A trading town of wide renown the star of cities all
A J.P. Of honour adjacant does reside
His name is D. Connelly, in him you may confide
His grand domain with splendour, does decorate the vale
Where the partridge and the pheasant, does sing their evening tale
For the want of education, I now must stop my pen
The name of this vacinity, you'll easily comprehend.
IV
The poet's name to mention lives near to Donegal
His talent's great can't half relate the praises due to all
The hills will spring with verdure green, when he is far away.
For death's command does tremblingly forbid him longer stay.
