03/11/15 - NNHS Newsletter - Bonnie Kellswater

The English language brings out the best in the Irish. They court it like a beautiful woman. They make it bray
with donkey laughter. They hurl it at the sky like a paint pot full of rainbows, and then make it chant a dirge
for man's fate and man's follies that is as mournful as misty spring rain crying over the fallow earth.

- T. E. Kalem on Brendan Behan's 1958 play, Borstal Boy

From - 03/10/15:

Through the pitch-black night, the captain saw a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship. He sent a signal: "Change your course 10 degree east."

The light signaled back: "Change yours, 10 degrees west."

Angry, the captain sent: "I'm a navy captain! Change your course, sir!"

"I'm a seaman, second class," came the reply. "Change your course, sir."

Now the captain was furious. "I'm a battleship! I'm not changing course!"

There was one last reply. "I'm a lighthouse. Your call."

Bonnie Kellswater

Here's a health to you, bonnie Kellswater
For it's there you'll find the pleasures of life
And it's there you'll find fishing and farming
And a bonnie wee girl for your wife.

On the hills and the glens and the valleys
Grows the softest of women so fine
And the flowers are all dripping with honey
There lives Martha, a true love of mine.

Bonnie Martha, you're the first girl I courted
You're the one put my heart in a snare
And if ever I should lose you to another
I will leave my Kellswater so fair.

For this one and that one may court her
But no other can take her from me
For I love her as I love my Kellswater
Like the primrose is loved by the bee.

Here's a health to you, bonnie Kellswater
For it's there you'll find the pleasures of life
And it's there you'll find fishing and farming
And a bonnie wee girl for your wife.
