The castle of Dromore

An Irish lullaby I started singing a long time ago and I never tire of it... beautiful melody and beautiful words. I love lullabies but I think this and 'The Gartan Mother's Lullaby' are my favourites.

The Castle of Dromore

The October winds lament 
Around the Castle of Dromore,
But peace is in her lofty halls,
My loving treasure store.
Though autumn leaves may droop and die
A bud of spring are you.
Sing hush-a-bye loo, la loo, lo lan,
Sing hush-a-bye loo, la lo.
Bring no ill winds to hinder us,
My helpless babe and me,
Dread spirits of the Blackwater 
Clan Eoghan's wild banshee.
For Holy Mary pitying us
In heav'n for grace doth sue.
Sing hush-a-bye loo, la loo, lo lan,
Sing hush-a-bye loo, la lo.
Take time to thrive, my rose of hope,
In the garden of Dromore.
Take heed, young eaglet, till your wings
Haave feathers fit to soar.
A little rest and then the world
Is full of work to do
Sing hush-a-bye loo, la loo, lo lan,
Sing hush-a-bye loo, la lo.
