Mount Prospect

MT. Prospect by James F. Higgins

 

                                              'Twas on a mt. in Highland..,
                                                     the county's wondrous name
                                               A gathering of clansmen..,
                                                     for Williams deeds.. his fame
                                               'Twas many there of Higgins blood..,
                                                     standing on that mount
                                               Ay.. descendants of old William..,
                                                     I tried.. but soon lost count
                                               'Twere cailins in long dresses..,
                                                     like Margaret must have worn
                                               And soldiers.. drum.. and flintlock..,
                                                     fife.. and bugle soared
                                               A violin cried "Danny Boy" ..,
                                                     then whispered GOD'S sweet grace
                                               The flag 'twas passed to young ones..,
                                                     the future of our race
                                               As taps 'twas played.. it echoed..,
                                                    I felt a raindrop fall
                                               'Twas like from heaven.. William cried..,
                                                    thanking one.. and all
                                               On a Mt. in Highland..,
                                                    the county's wondrous name
                                                A gathering of clansmen..,
                                                    for Williams deeds.. his fame
