If on the day a sterner fate Compelled his flight from Athenree, His blood had flowed, What numbers all disconsolate, Would come unasked, and share with thee Affliction’s load! If Derry’s crimson field had seen His life-blood offered up, though ’twere On Victory’s shrine, A thousand cries would swell the keen, A thousand voices of despair Would echo thine. O, had the fierce Dalcassian swarm That bloody night on Fergus’ banks But slain our chief, When rose his camp in wild alarm— How would the triumph of his ranks Be dashed with grief!

Theirs were not souls wherein dull Time Could domicile Decay or house Decrepitude!
