- Bannow's Lonely Shorei
To Bannow's lonely banks I often took my way,
To view the crafts of smaller size glide swiftly o'er the sea
The birds all on that lonely beach their sweetest notes do pour
But wandering still my heart doth cling to Bannows lonely shoreii
On these lone banks I often sat to view the flowing tide
The swelling breeze, the gentle bark, that oer the surface glide
The sea birds dismal notes do pour but all those joys are o'er
Yet recollection brings me back to Bannow's lonely shoreiii
And the boys with whom I used to sport when sparkling o'er the green,
Their smiling features I behold but the seas rolls wide between
Their graceful forms I still retain through sadly I deplore
When I cast back a wandering glance to "Bannows Lonely Shore."(continues on next page)Transcribed by a member of our volunteer transcription project.
