In Donegal

On tracks beside the old stone wall
Cows are returning to their stall,
And in the distance corncrakes call
In Donegal.

And out along the sandy shore
A sudden rain-storm starts to pour
On breakers where they roll and roar
In Donegal.

And in the lane where fuchsias hang
Is heard the farmerís bucketís clang
And wooden doors that blow and bang
In Donegal.

And in the cottage, smells compete:
The saucepan where theyíre cooking meat:
The fire slowly burning peat
In Donegal.

So when in traffic jams I crawl
And see graffiti on the wall
I hear again the windís voice call
In Donegal.
