h 3J rntmbranct(0. M. F.)THE minstrel for ever is silent,The voice is still,The strings of the harp lie brokenThat once could thrill;No more with music she lovedOf her own dear land,In plaintive ballad or layOr march song grand,Will the soul of the listener moveTill the soft tears fall,Or her martial notes arouseLike a clarion call.Back from the far-off yearsOld shapes would riseWarriors sword in hand,Wars panoplies,OConnor upon his shieldSlow past they bring,While loud the keene is raisedFor Erins last King.Is it Rory Dall is playingThat requiem lay?(The last of the harpers allWhen ONeill had sway.)Like sorrow for long-lost loveIt steals to the heart;Ah I the soul of the minstrels goneWhere no grief can smart.- ERNEST MILLIGAN.c,) a ;zz 7LIV
