A Lovers Dream


Many a journey home I've looked at Knocklayde
I could tell its mood by the colours God made
On a sunny day it displayed its many shades of green
Yet long winter days looked grey, a desolate scene

Some day it's my dream to climb to the top
Just to sit there looking, relaxing on a grassy spot
Looking at the fields of Ireland, savioring the view
But more important, I want to sit there with you

Together we'll climb each step hand in hand
A journey unknown to my love, be unplanned
When we get to the top, I'll bend on my knee
Will be the perfect place to ask 'will you marry me'

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
