|Music: Carolan's Draught
By Turlough O'Carolan. Sequenced by Barry Taylor.
|Alynna's the angel I hold in my arms
Like a spirit still partially sundered from self,
Yet anchored in life by my love unrestrained,
Needing my milk, that her flesh be maintained,
Not of Earth or of Heaven, she lives in the gulf
Angels call Eden for its unravished charms.
