Thread Name: Lyr Req: On the Banks of the Ban
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: On the banks of the ban
......just noticed, after perusing the words for possible peformance this w/e at Migglewitch, that the internal rhymes occur in Verses 1 & 2.

When first to this country a stranger I came
I placed my affection on a maid that was young
She being warm and tender, her waist small and slender
Kind nature had formed her for my overthrow

On the banks of the Bann, where I first beheld her
She appeared like fair Juno or a Grecian queen
Her eyes shone like diamonds, her hair softly twining
Her cheeks were like roses, or blood drops in snow

unusual, eh?
