Padraic Colum (1881–1972).  Anthology of Irish Verse.  1922.
 
158. To Morfydd
 
By Lionel Johnson
 
 
A VOICE on the winds,
A voice by the waters,
  Wanders and cries:
Oh! what are the winds?
And what are the waters?        5
  Mine are your eyes!
 
Western the winds are,
And western the waters,
  Where the light lies:
Oh! what are the winds?        10
And what are the waters?
  Mine are your eyes!
 
Cold, cold grow the winds,
And wild grow the waters,
  Where the sun dies:        15
Oh! what are the winds?
And what are the waters?
  Mine are your eyes!
 
And down the night winds,
And down the night waters,        20
  The music flies:
Oh! what are the winds?
And what are the waters?
Cold be the winds,
And wild be the waters,        25
  So mine be your eyes!
