  • A place in thy memory, dearest,
    Is all that I claim;
    To pause and look back when thou hearest
    The sound of my name.

  • When, like the rising day,
    Eileen Aroon!
    Love sends his early ray,
    Eileen Aroon!
    What makes his dawning glow
    Changeless through joy and woe?
    Only the constant know!—
    Eileen Aroon!
