Shannon, Silver Goddess, Flow To Sea

River Shannon at Portumna in Galway
River Shannon at Portumna in Galway. Downstream from Banagher where I grew up.

Shannon, silver goddess, flow to sea
And life bring you with thee
To the oceans loud and proud swell
Thy waters come, as if from a well
From which all of the midlands drinks
Your waters pure, the midlands links
With the seas wide expanse
With whose waters yours joins in a dance.
And so, silver goddess, each mile you grow,
Blesses be your waters that into the Atlantic flow.

Have your say...
