Irish Wedding Tale

Caitlín and Conner, this is their tale

from the verdant Emerald Isle they hailed

She was a seamstress, he was a sailor

& one day his ship set sail

He told her:

“My dear, wait for me here,

I’ll make haste, I will not fail

I’ll make this trip & make it back

In time to lift your veil”
