15FULL FIIGFI IN KILB1tIDE IS THE GRASS SEEN TO WAVE.FROM A LITERAL TRANSLATION OF THE ORIGINAL IRISH,BY MISS .BAL FOUR.FULL high in Kilbride is the grass seen to wave,That shadows, oh, generous Laughlin! thy grave;And oft, gallant chief! is its verdure renewd,By the tears of the widow and orphan beclewd.Where Boynes silver tide sweetly murmuring flows,The rich yellow harvest luxuriantly grows;But never again shall the stranger repairThe fruits it shall yield in thy mansion to share.The tones of the harp in that mansion have ceasd,No more it resounds with the mirth of the feast,But each gentle bosom for thee breathes a sigh,And tears of affection obscure each bright eye.No trophies of victory point to thy tomb,No laurels are planted around it to bloom,But long shall thy memory be dear to each breast,While thy spirit on high is enthrond with the blest.
