Mary Elizabeth Blake

  • All ye who love the springtime — and who but loves it well / When the little birds do sing, and the buds begin to swell! — / Think not ye ken its beauty or know its face so dear, / Till ye look upon old Ireland, in the dawning o' the year!

    • Mary Elizabeth Blake,
    • "The Dawning of the Year," in Edmund Clarence Stedman, An American Anthology 1787-1900 ()
  • For 'tis green, green, green, where the ruined towers are gray, / And it's green, green, green, all the happy night and day; / Green of leaf and green of sod, green of ivy on the wall, / And the blessed Irish shamrock with the fairest green of all.

    • "The Dawning of the Year," in Edmund Clarence Stedman, An American Anthology 1787-1900 ()
