Song of the Seals A sea maid sings on yonder reef The spell bound seals draw near A lilt that lures beyond belief Mortals enchanted hear Coir an oir an oir an oir o Coir an oir an oir an eer o Coir an oir an oir an ee lalyuran Coir an oir an oir an eer o The wandering ploughman halts his plough The maid her milking stays And sheep on hillside, bird on bough Pause and listen in amaze Was it a dream? Were all asleep? Or did she cease her lay? For the seals with a splash dive into the deep And the world goes on again Yet lingers the refrain sung by Jean Redpath SOF oct96
