Farewell! but for a while only. In early summer, ere the flowering of the whitethorn, I shall return. So assist me and mine, O Son of God. With the first swallow, then, look to see me, not alone, but leading a host. And many mouths wide now with laughter shall gape wider borne on the ends of spears- and many eyes lit now with the light of triumph shall roll sightless balls to the sun. For I shall die as I have lived - MMurrough, Captain of I-Kinsella and High King of all Leinster and of the Danes.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
