Maire's Dream


Lyrics: Master John Inchingham            
Music: Come Over the Water to Charlie - Trad



Chorus:
Come dance ye the duello, come prance with cold steel
Come dance with the rapier of Maire,
Come weal, come woe, come gather and go
To live the dream of Maire
Verses:
Come ladies of courage, come brave lords and true
Come answer the challenge of Mairie
I scorned her call once, but now I am sworn
To follow the rapier of Maire

She challenged the midrealm with her thin Spanish blade
And met with much scoffing and mockery
But those who laughed most are now grave men indeed
And the rest of us all follow Maire

I was but a young fool when first I did meet
The bold blond blade-maiden of Eire
I laughed at her sword *once* but never again
She wounded my heart so sorely

Come ladies of courage, come brave lords and true
Come answer the challenge of Mairie
I scorned her call once, but now I am sworn
To follow the rapier of Maire
