The Flower Girls Of Millstreet

In the Summer Corpus Christi procession long ago in Millstreet Town
Young girls of the Convent school among others up to the Town Square from the West End slowly walked down
With the warm winds from the mountains in the balmy air
Willie Murphy on his public address system led the congregation in prayer
The young girls sang hymns as flower petals from their baskets they scattered around
On such a nice memory great beauty to be found
Dressed in their communion lace dresses almost white as snow
So youthful and innocent with the inner glow
They looked so angelic with white sandals on their feet
As their flower petals they kissed and then tossed them on the street
A beautiful memory that is with me today
Such a memory i retain though time has left me gray
Such beautiful sounds and mental images live on in the brain
And the flower girls of Millstreet i see them again.
