William Allingham (March 19, 1824 or 1828 - November 18, 1889) was an Irish man of letters and poet.


  • Up the airy mountain,
    Down the rushy glen,
    We daren't go a-hunting,
    For fear of little men.


  • Winds and waters keep
    A hush more dead than any sleep.
    • Ruined Chapel.
  • Now Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods
    And day by day the dead leaves fall and melt.
    • Autumnal Sonnet.
  • Autumn's the mellow time.
    • The Winter Pear.
  • Oh, bring again my heart's content,
    Thou Spirit of the Summer-time!
    • Song.
  • Scarcely a tear to shed;
    Hardly a word to say;
    The end of a Summer's day;
    Sweet Love is dead.
    • An Evening.
  • Tantarrara! the joyous Book of Spring
    Lies open, writ in blossoms.
    • Daffodil.
  • Mary kept the belt of love, and oh, but she was gay!
    She danced a jig, she sung a song that took my heart away.
    • Lovely Mary Donnelly.
