Selected poems by John Millington Synge (Author: John Millington Synge)
- Thrush, linnet, stare and wren,
Brown lark beside the sun,
Take thought of kestril, sparrow-hawk,
Birdlime and roving gun.
- You great-great-grandchildren
Of birds I've listened to,
I think I robbed your ancestors
When I was young as you.
