- Song Lyrics
“Who’s that outside whose voice is urgent,
pounding on my closed door?”
“I’m Éamonn of the hill, drowned, cold and wet,
from endlessly traveling mountains and glens.”
“Dearest love and treasure, what can I do for you but cover you with the lap of my dress?”
And black gunpowder will be fired endlessly at us,
and we will both perish!”
“I’ve long been outside in snow and in frost,
not daring to approach anyone.
My fallow unplanted,
my team in need of unyoking,
and I no longer have them at all!
I have no friend— how that grieves me— who’d take me in, early or late.
And so I must go eastward across the sea,
for it’s there I have no kindred.”
