Three Little Emigrants

by Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt
A Romance Of Cork Harbour, 1884

The soldier’s coat was English-red,
And Irish-red was Katy’s cheek:
“But he’s a handsome boy,” she said,
“And it’s to-night he means to speak.

“Who’s English-born is not to blame
For that! (He would become the green.)
Sure, but it is a burning shame
To think he will stand by the Queen.

“He and Sir Garnet, side-by-side,
Fought beautifully, though, out there, –
Faith! he’s splendid scar to hide
With all that elegant black hair!”
