NUMBER:6477
AUTHOR:Helen Selina, Lady Dufferin Sheridan (1807–1867)
QUOTATION:I’m bidding you a long farewell,
  My Mary, kind and true,
But I’ll not forget you, darling,
  In the land I’m going to.
They say there’s bread and work for all,
  And the sun shines always there;
But I’ll not forget old Ireland,
  Were it fifty times as fair.
ATTRIBUTION:Lament of the Irish Emigrant.
