A January Day West Of Millstreet Town

The river from Kippagh in storm waters of brown
Bank high in the old fields west of Millstreet Town
From recent heavy rain on this January day
And stealing down Clara the rain fogs of gray
The cold gales are howling in bare deciduous trees
And the weather temperatures down to minus three degrees
Brown rain water flowing bank high in every stream and drain
And in the weather forecast more gales, sleet and rain
So many cold, wild and wet days and nights until the prime of the spring
When the birds of Nature will build nests, mate and sing
The month of the long, cold, wild and wet night and the short and bleak day
And of cattle in farm yard sheds bellowing for silage or hay
And the river from Kippagh in storm waters of brown
Bank high in the old fields west of Millstreet Town.
