FATHER PROUT
(PSEUDONYM OF FRANCIS SYLVESTER MAHONY)
Irish writer and wit
(1804 - 1866)

There is a stone there,
  That whoever kisses,
    Oh! he never misses
      To grow eloquent.
        'Tis he may clamber
          To a lady's chamber
            Or become a member
              Of Parliament.
      - his addition to "Groves of Blarney", in "Reliques of Father Prout"
        [Ireland]

On this I ponder
  Where'er I wander,
    And thus grow fonder,
      Sweet cork, of thee,--
        With thy bells of Shandon,
          That sounds so grand on
            The pleasant waters
              Of the river Lee.
      - The Bells of Shandon [Lee River]

With deep affection
  And recollection
    I often think of
      Those Shandon bells,
        Whose sounds so wild would,
          In the days of childhood,
            Fling round my cradle
              Their magic spells.
      - The Bells of Shandon [Bells]
