So Little For My Years

So little for my years I have for to show
And so little about life I can claim to know
But from living we learn something new every day
We learn as we live as some are known to say
I have loved Mother Nature since I was a boy
And walks in her quiet places I still do enjoy
Her joys they are many though her secrets not few
One might say to that tell us something that's new
My journey in life commenced near Millstreet Town
And it has been awhile now since my hair was dark brown
And it's been years since I've seen Hibernia's shore
And walked on the high fields of old Claramore
But the longer one lives the sooner one does die
An old saying I remember and that's not a lie.
