In Ireland's Hills So Fair, Eoghan Lyng demonstrates his love for the natural beauty of his homeland. A link that, if anything, is strengthened by him being so far away.
And I sit in anticipation
Of a day I shall return
To find myself in her beauty
The land in hand
And serene green everywhere to be seen
Oh, Ireland, your hills so fair
Be damned to any man
who thinks his love be more than you'll ever wear
a smile on him when he thinks of the lakes
so pretty in winter and a temptress
by spring she takes every man that walks her
away from his family's love
into something deeper than he will ever know
Ireland's hills rain down 'ere and bring the love you were borne to share.
