Padraic Colum (1881–1972).  Anthology of Irish Verse.  1922.
 
88. In Spain
 
By Emily Lawless
 
 
YOUR sky is a hard and a dazzling blue,
Your earth and sands are a dazzling gold,
And gold or blue is the proper hue,
You say for a swordsman bold.
 
In the land I have left the skies are cold,        5
The earth is green, the rocks are bare,
yet the devil may hold all your blue and your gold
Were I only once back there!
