Poem Title:  Come Gather Round Me, Parnellites

Poem Category:  General Poems

Poet:  William Butler Yeats

Poet Biography: 
William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) was a poet whose influences include The Occult, symbolism and Irish political independance

Come gather round me, Parnellites,
and praise our chosen man;
Stand upright on your legs awhile,
stand upright while you can,
for soon we lie where he is laid,
and he is underground;
Come fill up all those glasses
and pass the bottle round.

And here's a cogent reason,
and I have many more,
he fought the might of England
And saved the Irish poor,
whatever good a farmer's got
He brought it all to pass;
And here's another reason,
that parnell loved a lass.

And here's a final reason,
he was of such a kind
every man that sings a song
Keeps Parnell in his mind.
for Parnell was a proud man,
No prouder trod the ground,
and a proud man's a lovely man,
so pass the bottle round.

The Bishops and the party
that tragic story made,
a husband that had sold hiS wife
and after that betrayed;
But stories that live longest
are sung above the glass,
and Parnell loved his countrey
and parnell loved his lass.
