Arcanum

35. Cailín Óg a Stór

“Good men and true in this house who dwell,
To a stranger bouchal* I pray you tell:
Is the priest at home, or may he be seen?
I would speak a word with Father Green.”

“The Priest’s at home, boy, and may be seen;
’Tis easy speaking with Father Green.
But you must wait till I go and see
If the Holy Father alone may be.”

The youth has enter’d an empty hall;
What a lonely sound has his light footfall!
And the gloomy chamber’s chill and bare,
With a vested Priest in a lonely chair."
