    St. Brigid’s Day

    Brids in the trees! sweet carols sing;
    Winds in the woods! more softly play;
    Here comes the herald of the spring –
    St. Brigids Day.

    From heaven’s blue window panes, winds! Seep
    Cloud curtains, May the sun’s smile turn
    Away all tears from eyes that weep,
    And hearts that mourn.

    Skylarks! You sunny stairways climb,
    Broadcasting hymns to God above.
    Say “Brigid’s Day is Eireann’s time
    Of joy and love”.

    May Brigid’s Cross above each door
    Of every Irish home be set;
    And may all love her more and more,.
    And ne’eer forget.
