Doesn't ring any bells. Could you perhaps be talking about "The Dreaming of the Bones" by Yeats? Although a play, this poetic piece is about Dervorgilla, the Irish equivalent of Helen of Troy.

The poem in question is definately by Sir Thomas Moore.It deals with the "carrying off" of Dervorgilla by Hugh Mc. Murragh
