W:Bounteous nature loves all lands, Beauty wonders ev'rywhere; W:Footprints leaves on many strand, But her home is surely there! W:Angels fold their wings and rest, In that Eden of the west W:Beauty's home Killarney, Heaven's reflex Killarney. W: W:2 W:No place else can charm the eye, With such bright and varied tints, W:Ev'ry rock that you pass by, Verdure broiders or besprints. W:Virgin there the green grass grows, Ev'ry morn Spring's natal day; W:Bright-hued berries daff the snows, Smiling winter's frown away. W:Angels often pausing there, Doubt if Eden were more fair, W:Beauty's home Killarney, Heaven's reflex Killarney. W: W:3 W:Music there for Echo dwells, Makes each sound a Harmony, W:Many-voic'd the chorus swells Till it faints in ecstasy. W:With the charmful tints below Seems the Heaven above to vie, W:All rich colours that we know Tinge the cloud-wreaths in that sky. W:Wings of Angels so might shine Glancing back soft light divine, W:Beauty's home Killarney, Heaven's reflex Killarney. % % % % % % % % % %]
