1. A Poem To Be Said on Hearing the Birds Sing
 
By Dr. Douglas Hyde (Translated)
 
 
A FRAGRANT prayer upon the air
My child taught me,
Awaken there, the morn is fair,
The birds sing free;
Now dawns the day, awake and pray,        5
And bend the knee;
The Lamb who lay beneath the clay
Was slain for thee.
