#CoffinHop – An Irish Lullaby

Irish coast

 

An Irish Lullaby

 

Hush now, close your eyes

against the looming night

and the tempting moonlight.

Hush now, close your eyes.

 

Against the looming night

when the Fae Folk roam,

between morn and gloam.

Against the looming night

 

When the Fae Folk roam,

hear the banshee who wails.

I will sing you some tales,

when the Fae Folk roam.

 

Hear the banshee who wails.

Hush now, close your eyes,

dream of clear blue skies.

Hear the banshee who wails.

 

Hush now, close your eyes

against the looming night

and the tempting moonlight.

Hush now, close your eyes.

Irish Lament

Bring me home, oh roaming wave
to breathe my last by the shore.
Lay blooms on my gloaming grave;
wildflowers, that I adore.

In youth I raced the ocean,
my wild heart set to wander.
Dusk shadowed my devotion,
so on death I now ponder.

Ireland waits, oh fair isle,
beyond this froth of sea foam.
Gone are days of no care, while
mortality brings me home.
