    On Raglan Road of an autumn day
    I saw her first and knew
    That her dark hair would weave a snare
    That I might one day rue
    I saw the danger and I passed
    Along the enchanted way
    And I said let grief be a fallen leaf
    At the dawning of the day

    On Grafton Street in November
    We tripped lightly along the ledge
    Of a deep ravine where can be seen
    The worth of passion's pledge
    The Queen of Hearts still making tarts
    And I not making hay
    Oh I loved too much and by such by such
    Is happiness thrown away

    I gave her gifts of the mind
    I gave her the secret signs
    That's known to the artists who have known
    The true gods of sound and stone
    And word and tint I did not stint
    I gave her poems to say
    With her own name there
    And her own dark hair
    Like clouds over fields of May

    On a quiet street where old ghosts meet
    I see her walking now
    Away from me so hurriedly my reason must allow
    That I had loved not as I should
    A creature made of clay
    When the angel woos the clay
    He'll lose his wings at the dawn of day
