Still sad and lamenting like the banshee a-"keening",
But not as a warning is dear Ireland's prayer,
But that freedom and peace may be the glad meaning
In the sad, mourning voice of the winds of Kildare.The above poem was composed and written two years ago after the annual excursion to the grave of Wolfe Tone in Bodenstown churchyard.
