Oh graceful land I've never seen
Your gentle hills of rolling green
Oh lovely land before me spread
Those cobbled paths I long to tread!

Your peaceful pastures - so serene
I yearn to see that tranquil scene
Your dew-kist meadow - clover fills
Your sandstone castles - my heart stills!

And on my mind will ever be
Your rising cliffs, your misty shore
Oh Emerald Isle on the sea
You'll call to me forevermore!

Oh charming land of leprechauns
The 'pot-O-gold', the Blarney Stone
Oh Isle of green my heart you own
At end of day and when it dawns!

Oh graceful land I've never seen
Your cobbled paths I long to tread
Oh lovely land before me spread
Those gentle hills of rolling green!

Oh Emerald Isle on the sea
Yes, even still, you call to me
Oh Emerald jewel of the sea
Yes, even still, you beckon me!

Beauiful imagary

Don't ever give in, if you do you've lost everything you've ever had and everything you hope to gain, but if you carry on your already winning.

==================

beautiful imagery and wonderful rhyme and cadence ...
this was a treat to read aloud ..
wonderfully done Denise ...
ya made me proud to be Irish

Some find subtlety in strangers
some find subtlety alone
Your eyes,you see everything
my eyes,I see its all together now
and I know.
