O, It Was Out By Donnycarney
by James Joyce


O, it was out by Donnycarney
When the bat flew from tree to tree
My love and I did walk together;
And sweet were the words she said to me.


Along with us the summer wind
Went murmuring - O, happily! -
But softer than the breath of summer
Was the kiss she gave to me.
