Goodbye, My Darling Foster Child

Music: Tabhair dom do lamh.
By Rory Dall O'Caghan. Sequenced at the Ancient Music of Ireland.

Goodbye, my darling foster child,
On to another home!
Open doors remain behind.
Do but turn, and you will find
Bestride your heart, my own.
You may the wind, unwept and wild,
Embrace, but not alone.
