erinmaidin Origin: When You and I were Young Maggie (52* d) Lyr Add: NORA (Sean O'Casey) 09 Apr 04


The version I sing, attributed to Sean O'Casey is


NORA (from the play The Plough and the Stars, 1926)

The violets were scenting the woods, Nora
Displaying their charms to the bee
When I first said I loved only you, Nora
And you said you loved only me.

The chestnut blooms gleamed through the glade, Nora
A robin sang loud from a tree
When I first said I loved only you, Nora
And you said you loved only me.

The golden-robed daffodils shone, Nora
And danced in the breeze on the lea
When I first said I loved only you, Nora
And you said you loved only me.

The trees, birds and bees sang a song, Nora
Of happier transports to be
When I first said I loved only you, Nora
And you said you loved only me.

Our dreams they have never come true, Nora
Our hopes they were never to be
When I first said I loved only you, Nora
And you said you loved only me.
