Ian Cameron (Ian Mór)

Song to Aithne

THY dark eyes to mine, Aithne,

Lamps of desire!

Oh how my soul leaps,

Leaps to their fire!

Sure now, if I in heaven,

Dreaming in bliss,

Heard but the whisper,

But the lost echo even,

Of one such kiss,

All of the Soul of me

Would leap afar;

If that called me to thee,

Aye, I would leap afar,

A falling star!
