Down By The Salley Gardens
Maura O Lyrics


Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meet;
She passed the sally gardens with her little snow-white feet.
She bid me take love easy, as the leaves grow on the tree;
But I, being young and foolish, with her would not agree.

In a field by the river my love and I did stand,
And on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow-white hand.
She bid me take life easy, as the grass grows on the weirs;
But I was young and foolish, and now am full of tears.

Down by the Salley Gardens 柳園深處 
My love and I did meet 愛人與我相遇
She passed the Salley Gardens 她雪白的小腳
With little snow-white feet 輕柔漫步園底

She bid me take love easy 她要我愛得自在
As the leaves grow on the tree 如綠葉舒展枝頭
I being young and foolish 年少的我愚癡
With her did not agree 聽不進她的勸

In a field by the river 河畔原野
My love and I did stand 愛人與我靜立
And on my leaning shoulder 她雪白的手 
She laid her snow-white hand 停在我前傾的肩

She bid me take life easy 她囑我自然處世
As the grass grows on the weirs 如綠草滋長堤岸
But I was young and foolish 年少的我愚癡 
And now am full of tears 而今垂淚滿腮

- William Butler Yeats

Down by the Salley gardens,
my love and I did meet
She passed the Salley gardens
with little snow-white feet

She bid me take life easy,
as the leaves grow on the trees
But, I being young and foolish,
with her I did not agree

In a field gone by the river,
my love and I did stand
And on my leaning shoulder
she placed her snow-white hand

She bid me take love easy,
as the grass grows on the weirs
But I was young and foolish
and now I am full of tears

Down by the Salley gardens,
my love and I did meet
And she passed the Salley gardens with little snow-white feet

She bid me take life easy,
as the grass grows on the weirs
But I was young and foolish
and now I am full of tears

インキャなフランス人 私はアイルランドと日本のハーフだけど父がこの曲を教えてくれました。いつまでも皆さんの中でこの曲が生きていますように。p.s. 日本の学生でアイルランドの文化を嗜み、尚且つインキャなフランス人ってカオスだねw

Such a beautiful rendition. I wish I could 'like' this a million times.

Kay Win

Me too.

Actually this song is playing a small character in Ian McEwan latest novel: The children act so I had to hear the song

Diane Blitzer

Actually, the song plays an important role. You have a passionate young man - passionate about his faith, passionate about disowning his faith, passionate about poetry when it is revealed to him, passionate about "Milady," passionate about being director of his disease. And the poem says, "She bade me take love easy, but I would not agree."

George brown Love

Yes so beautiful, how are you dear

Jimmy NADER
