For copes, which gave us great content;
And handkerchiefs, embroider'd o'er,
Instead of stoles we also wore;

Repeating with all proper unction,
Incessantly each holy function.

...e a drifting smoke
All manner of blessed souls,
Women and children, young men with books,
And old men with croziers and stoles.

'praise God and God's Mother,' Dathi said,
'For God and God's Mother have sent
The blessedest souls that walk in the world
To fill your heart with content.'

'And which is the blessedest,' Cumhal said,
'Where all are comely and good?
Is it these that with golden thuribles
Are singing about the wood?'
