1) Shamrock and Heather Bell
There's a leaf for Faith, and a leaf for Hope, And a leaf for Charity;
The three combines we sometimes find; Then hail Love's chivalry.
Light love may come, light love may go; Alack for Cupid's quiver,
That eyes, star bright of a summer's night, Gleam cold ere winter's shiver.
True love will last through stormy blast, Untouched as halcyon weather,
The pledge, dear maid, at your feet oft laid - 'Tis a bank of purple heather.
For heather, though found on poorest ground, Drew life when dark skies lowered,
Now smiles on the plaid of village maid, And now on her sister dowered.
The brown bee meets on her lip the sweets, That give to the honey flavour,
For heather bells drink from that font, I think, Which gives to life its savour.
Heath blooms in the croft, on mountain loft, As well as the sheltered valley,
Through life's short stride may true lovers bide, Where heather and shamrock dally.
R. W. Stewart, Colonel September 25th
2)  An extraordinary and possibly unprecedented event marked the last meeting of the Ballymahon (County Roscommon) Council.  One of the members, a Mr. Halligan, recently got possession of a piece of land in the locality, to which objection was taken by the local members of the United Irish League. At the time appointed for the council meeting Mr. Halligan attended, and shortly afterwards several other councillors entered the room, and seeing him there, left again. A vote was sent to the chairman, Mr. Geraghty, J.P., asking him to adjourn the meeting. The contents of the note were communicated to Mr. Halligan, who said he was tried to be forced to do what the law did not allow.  He could not dispense with the land he had now taken, without the sanction of the law.  The Chairman - I don't understand this business.  Mr. Halligan - The old woman died. I got attendance for the poor woman, and had to pay for funeral expenses, and paid the rent for a considerable time before she died. I then administered this place, and this row now is the result. Until they had a fair claim against him he would hold on, and the action of those who were now demonstrating had not, her was sure, the sympathy of the Central Executive.  Mr. Allard - Is there any proof of that?  Mr. Farrell, a member of the council, said that when Mr. Halligan and the League did not agree he would have to withdraw.  The Chairman said it was very unpleasant to ?? such a thing occurring in the Boardroom.   ... (would like to know how this turned out Mary :D)

Third Reading Book Lesson 37 - We Are Seven or, A Child's Notion of Death
-------- A simple child, That lightly draws its breath,
And feels its life in every limb, What should it know of death?
I met a little cottage girl, She was eight years old, she said:
Her hair was thick with many a curl, That clustered round her head.
She had a rustic, woodland air, And she was wildly clad:
Her eyes were fair, and very fair, Her beauty made me glad
"Sisters and brothers, little maid, How many may you be?"
"How many? Seven in all," she said, And, wondering, looked at me.
"And where are they? I pray you tell." She answered, "Seven are we;
And two of us at Conway dwell, And two are gone to sea.
"Two of us in the churchyard lie, My sister and my brother;
And in the churchyard cottage, I Dwell near them with my mother."
"You say that two at Conway dwell, And two are gone to sea;
Yet you are seven! - I pray you tell, Sweet maid, how this may be."
Then did the little maid reply, - "Seven boys and girls are we;
Two of us in the churchyard lie, Beneath the churchyard-tree."
"You run about, my little maid, Your limbs they are alive;
If two are in the churchyard laid, Then you are only five."
"Their graves are green, they may be seen," The little maid replied;
"Twelve steps or more from my mother's door, And they are side by side.
"My stockings there I often knit, My kerchief there I hem;
And there upon the ground I sit - I sit and sing to them.
And often after sunset, sir, When it is light and fair,
I take my little porringer, And eat my supper there.
"The first that died was little Jane; In bed she moaning lay,
Till God released her of her pain, And then she went away.
"So in the churchyard she was laid; And all the summer dry,
Together round her grave we played, My brother John and I.
"And when the ground was white with snow, And I could run and slide,
My brother John was forced to go, And he lies by her side."
"How many are you then," said I, "If they two are in heaven?"
The little maiden did reply, "O master! we are seven."
"But they are dead; those two are dead; Their spirits are in heaven!"
'Twas throwing words away; for still The little maid would have her will,
And said, "Nay, we are seven."

The Wreck  of the S.S. Titanic
Sank off Cape Race on her maiden voyage to New York, 15th April 1912
The Titan's Daughter
Blithely, blithely she sailed from port, The great and gallant ship;
And we gave three cheers of the ringing sort to herald her maiden trip.
Gaily, gaily her streamers flew, Bravely her flags unfurled,
As our Titan's Daughter took the blue, Queen of the ships of the world.
Never her like had sailed the seas, Never for size or speed,
Never for luxury, splendour, ease, Queen of vessels indeed.
Proudly, proudly we watched her start,  Conqueress of the main;
And there lilted still in our swelling hearts, A song with this glib refrain:
We have brought nature our sway Beneath, Have bridled her to our beck;
We have set a bit in the tempest's teeth, and a yoke on the Ocean's neck;
We have harnessed the lightning's powers, And wind and fire and steam;
Lo! in yonder city of floating towers goes proof of our reign supreme.
Sadly, sadly her fate we read, Blank at the words we gazed,
With stony eyes and dizzy head, Stunned, bewildered, amazed.
And with the grief the tidings impart, The shock, the horror, the pain,
There echoed still in our stricken hearts, A dirge with this grim refrain:
We have brought Nature our sway beneath; And she laughs at the futile check,
When she's minded to take the bit in her teeth and fling the yoke from her neck.
Awhile she humours our vault of power, Our play at being supreme;
But a toss of the hand, in her chosen hour! - and where is that soothing dream?

Blithely, blithely she sailed from port, The great and gallant ship;
And the fathomless depths where the Nereids sport are the bourne of her maiden trip.

2) April 14th, 1912 The Loss of the Titanic
Let your flags go half-mast high for the loss of the Titanic,
The shocking news that she was lost in Belfast caused a panic,
For there are the men that built her; her praises we sang loud,
When we saw her sail from Belfast each citizen was proud.

But God had so ordained it her first trip was her last,
And there's many a sad aching heart in the city of Belfast.
What about the costly Ship? it is the precious lives?
May God in heaven comfort their children and their wives.

We knew she was a mighty ship; we saw her flags unfurled;
She was a floating palace - Yes, the largest in the world;
But yet upon the ocean she was just a tiny spot,
And her loss this old country will never be forgot.

We know her officers and crew like Britons acted, brave -
Saved women and the children first, then went to a watery grave -
Died at their post of duty, like manly British tars;
We mourn their loss in Britain great, and in the land of Stripes & Stars.

God comfort the relations of the men who've crossed the Bar,
To face the Admiral above - the crew of the White Star.
We say's God's holy will be done for he knows all things best;
Their voyage on earth is finished; in Heaven may they rest.
