THE EMIGRANT'S FAREWELL. THE last breeze from Erin Has passed o'er my brow, The gale of the ocean Is over me now; I leave thee my country! Farewell! though thou art The life pulse that stirs me, The veins of my heart. Erin mavoumeen, farewell! I gaze where the bright scene Falls back to the west, And tinges the blue clouds That hang o'er thy breast: The bark bears me from thee To sail o'er the deep, While on thy green bosom I gaze,—and I weep; Erin mavourneen, farewell! I weep, for thy spring-time Of beauty is oe'r; And feel. while my dimm'd eye Is on thy loved shore, Like the mourner, when fixing His gCèze on the dead, He bends o'er the cold earth Whose spirit is fled; Erin mavourneen, farewell The tear-drooping willow Hangs over thy lyre The chill-blast hath broken Each soul-stirring wire: Through the gloom of thy darkness No day-beam appears And thy sweet type, Ierne, Is gemmed by thy tears; Erin mavourneen, farewell! Farewell! for no longer I gaze on thy shore The mists are between us, 1 view thee no more Perhaps to my country I breathe the last strain Perhaps I may never Behold thee again; Erin mavourneen, farewell! Though in darkness, Ierne, Thy sun may have set; Thy emerald bosom I ne'er can forget; And while o'er the deep ocean The breeze bears my barque, My heart like its billow, Heaves deeply and dark: Erin mavourneen, farewell!
