X:1 T:The Wild Swans at Coole M:2/2 L:1/8 C:Ed Reavy R:reel N:Ed wanted one of his tunes to commemorate N:this favorite poem of his. He didn't know much Yeats, but what he knew N:he appreciated-particularly the last verse of "the Swans" N:But now they drift on the still water, N:Mysterious, beautiful; N:Among what rushes will they build, N:By what lake's edge or pool, N:Delight men's eyes when I awake someday, N:To find they have flown away.
