about

The Lark in the Clear Air
Lyrics by Sir Samuel Ferguson of Belfast circa 1850. The traditional tune ‘Caislean u, néill’ was collected by Lady Ferguson in the west of Ireland.
Track Illustration: The Song of the Lark (Jules Breton, 1884)

lyrics

Dear thoughts are in my mind
And my soul soars enchanted,
As I hear the sweet lark sing
In the clear air of the day.
For a tender beaming smile
To my hope has been granted,
And tomorrow she shall hear
All my fond heart would say.

I shall tell her all my love,
All my soul's adoration,
And I think she will hear
And will not say me nay.
It is this that gives my soul
All its joyous elation,
As I hear the sweet lark sing
In the clear air of the day.
