A TEAR FOR IRELAND

video


MY INTERPRETATION DANNY BOY


MY INTERPRETATION

DANNY BOY

A SAD TALE

OF IRELAND'S

TURMOIL.


Oh, Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling

MEN OFF TO WAR

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side

THE  CALLING OF ARMS

THROUGHOUT THE LAND.


The summer's gone, and all the roses falling,


THE MEN ARE FALLING IN WAR

A SEASON CHANGES

THE MEN ARE DYING.


It's you, it's you must go and I must bide.


MY LOVE I MUST LET YOU GO TO WAR


But come ye back when summer's in the meadow



WHEN   MY LOVE RETURNS HOME


and love will be ablaze once more


WE CAN FROLIC THROUGH THE FLOWERS

WHERE THE SUMMER

HAS WARMED OUR LOVE.


Or when the valley's hushed and white with snow,

WHEN PEACE HAS HUSHED THE LAND

TEARS HAVE CLEANSED THE HEART AND LAND.
                       


It's I'll be here in sunshine or in shadow,


I WILL BE WAITING IN THE SUN

OR RESTING

WHERE I SLEEP FOREVER.




Oh, Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so!



But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying


WINTER HAS COME MY LOVE  I AM CALLING


If I am dead, as dead I well may be,

I MAY OR MAY NOT BE

YET MY LOVE WILL NOT END



Ye'll come and find the place where I am lying,

LOOK FOR ME WHERE I REST
               


And kneel and say an Avè there for me.


I WILL  HONOR THEE BY SAYING A PRAYER
FOR THY SOUL TO REST.



And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me,

                   

I WILL HEAR YOUR GENTLE WORDS
THOUGH I’LL TREAD SOFTLY AT YOUR  GRAVE


And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be


BECAUSE I KNOW MY LOVE HAS COME TO ME



For you will bend and tell me that you love me,

I WILL HONOR THEE,  GENTLY SPEAK OF LOVE



And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me!


I WILL FIND A PEACEFUL RESTFUL SLEEP
WHEN YOU’RE THERE WITH ME.

FORESIGHT


Use your Tears
Where
The Flowers
Grow Most

Use your Heart
Where
The Pain is Most

Use your Cares
Where
Love is Not

Use your Smile
Where
Children Frown

Use your Hopes
Where
Dreams are Real

Use your Kindness
Where
Hatred is Bred

Use your Patience
Where
Understanding is Needed

Use your Wisdom
Where
Ignorance is Spoken

Use Yourself
Where
Love needs Seeding

Use your Faith
Where
God is Served.

Insight is only good ,
if not blinded by real sight
For is it? what I see ,
Or what I know to be true?
