IRISH RACE

A Popular History of Ireland

BY
SEUMAS MACMANUS

ASSISTED BY SEVERAL IRISH SCHOLARS

O wind-drifted Branch, lift your head to the sun,
For the sap of new life in your veins hath begun,
And a little young bud of the tenderest green
Mine eyes through the snow and the sorrow have seen!

O little green bud, break and blow into flower,
Break and blow through the welcome of sunshine and shower ;
'Twas a long night and dreary you hid there forlorn,
But now the cold hills wear the radiance of morn!

-ETHNA CARBERY.
