And the vessel from a mountain wave came down with thundering shock;
And her timbers flew like scattered spray on Inchadoney's rock.
7.
Then loud from all that guilty crew one shriek rose wild and high;
But the angry surge swept over them, and hushed their gurgling cry;
And with a hoarse exhulting tone the tempest passed away,
And down, still chafing from their strife th' indignant waters lay.
8.
When the calm and purple moon shone out on high Dunmore,
Full many a mangled corpse was seen on Inchadoney shore;
And to this day the fishermen show where the scoffers sank;
And still he calls that hillock green "the Virgin Mary's bank".
