SUNSET IN THE DEVIL'S GLEN: COUNTY WICKLOW, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Warm the summer wind is blowing
Last Line: Changes from rosy-red to grey.


WARM the summer wind is blowing;
From the west the sun is glowing
Over lake and heath and fen;
Merrily the stream is flowing;
On the hills the kine are lowing;
Dark and long the shadow's growing,
Purpling o'er the Devil's Glen;
Far away, in light and gloom,
Glendalough's gaunt mountains loom.
The trysting-hour has passed away;
The sweet sad smile o' the dying day
Changes from rosy-red to grey.
