Subject: Lyr Req: Richard Hayward 'Love in Ulster'
From: GUEST,Jim Clark poetryreincarnation youtube channe
Date: 28 Jun 11 - 10:07 AM

Can anybody help me with the text of the poem "Love in Ulster" which I have entitled as it sounds more interesting "Girls is Quare" an obscure poem by the late Ulster poet and actor Richard Hayward 1892 - 1964.Hayward was also a singer and wrote lyrics.I wanted to actualy re-animate Hayward himself,but could only find a fuzzy low resolution photo of him around the internet

Heres the link to my virtual movie of the poem at my youtube poetryreincarnations channel.

Love in Ulster or "Girls is Queer" Poem animation

There is little in the spoken poem that is obscure to me. However, I'll be away for several days and it would be best if you could transcribe what you think you hear, post it, and I'll tidy it up for you when I get back to the web.

This is what I make of it.

Danderin' down the loanin'
On a day of spring wi' Kathy McIlvenna
Says I, "The whin's a tidy thing,"
Says she, "I wouldn't wonder,
But I never thought much about whins," says she,
An' me just studyin' to be polite,
Ach, girls is a mystery to me, girls is quare!

Walkin' up the low road
On a harvest night, wi' Hetty Saunderson,
Says I, "The moon's a wee thing bright,"
Says she, "ye needn't bother,
For I'm only out? gallivantin," says she,
An' me just thinkin' the crack was good,
Sowl, girls is a mystery to me, girls is quare!

Sittin' up in Wullie's fiel'
A wheen o' nights wi' Jinny Anderson
Says I, "Thon house would do us,"
"Och Jack," says she, "I wouldn't marvel,"
An' a clatter o' talk fell between her an' me,
An' the whole thing's fixed, an' the date to be,
Boys, girls is a mystery to me, girls is quare!

Thankyou very much Donal I just couldnt work out the first line,and several others although I love this humorous little poem. Are you from Ulster yourself is that how you deciphered it ?

I would love to locate any other biographical info and photographs of Hayward if anybody knows if there is any more on the internet.Alas he was killed in 1964 in a car accident,but its a bit odd that there seems to be only one rather fuzzy photo of him on the internet.

Anyway Thanks again to Donal for giving me a text to this delightful poem which I am just about to add to the notes of youtube animation.

Kind Regards

Jim Clark

There does seem to be relatively little on the internet about Hayward but you can find at least one of his films (The Devil's Rock, 1938) on Youtube. It's particularly interesting because it includes the only known footage of the legendary piper and pipemaker, Richard O'Meally.
