Subject: Go no more a roving, Late into the night
From: GUEST,James
Date: 21 Jan 00 - 09:16 PM

"so we'll go no more a roving, Late into the night; Though the heart be still as loving and the moon still as bright"

for the sword outwears the sheath and the heart wears out the breast and God must truly grieve 'cause I can't remember the rest

Can anyone help?

So we'll go no more a-roving so lat into the night

Though the heart be still as loving and the moon be still as bright

For the sword outwears it's sheath and the soul outwears the breast.

And the heart must pause to breathe and love itself must rest

Though the night was made for loving and the day returns too soon.

Yet we'll go no more a-roving by the light of the moon.

There you go ----- Now does anyone have the bloody chords!!

Cheers

Thanks, by the way to my 1964 edition of Tom Glazer's "A NEW TREASURY OF FOLK SONGS".

Words by Byron.

Cheers

Yes... this beautiful poem is by Lord Byron:

So we'll go no more a roving So late into the night, Though the heart be still as loving, And the moon be still as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath, And the soul wears out the breast, And the heart must pause to breathe, And Love itself have rest.

Though the night was made for loving, And the day returns too soon, Yet we'll go no more a roving By the light of the moon.

Bugsy - I can see I really screwed up on sending the chords. If you can't work 'em out post again & I'll work hard to recreate the thing.

Thanks Old Mole. Can you tell me more about Byron than I might be able to look up? It is indeed a beautiful poem/lyric.

I've thought that it would be interesting to put together a program of such poem/songs, writen by people we think of, primarily as poets Such as The Wandering Angus by Yeats, (Did he also write Down By the Sally Gardens?) some of the Burns songs, The Highwayman (as sung by Phil Ochs) a couple of the Edgar Allen Poe poems, (annabelle Lee and The Bells) Any other ideas? Perhaps I'll start its very own thread.

Byron was a very bad man and a very great poet...best known for his great, biting comic narrative poem, Don Juan (pronounced Joo-an), although there are some other lovely lyric pieces, like this one:

She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that's best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellow'd to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impair'd the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens o'er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind at peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!

But it's actually Byron the comic narrative poet who's drawn me most recently, because Ive been working on something along the same lines.

Yeats did write Down By the Sally Gardens...also The Host of the Air, recorded by the Clancy Brothers as O'Driscoll.

Wow, and I didn't think my post got through even once. Thrice!! I am not really that emphatic, but I did start the poet song thread.
