Along the slopes of Glencolmcille

A vision of beauty lay before me

And I knew I would happily die

To preserve all under this tumultuous sky


Once untouched yet still alive

A fairy did come to me

And led me by the hand

Far into the cold sea


There we made our secret pact

And I promised I’d come back

To save the sands at her command

Along the hills of Glencolmcille
