"Streets Of Arklow" as written by and Van Morrison....
And as we walked
Through the streets of Arklow
Oh the color
Of the day wore on
And our heads
Were filled with poetry
And the morning
A-comin' on to dawn

And as we walked
Through the streets of Arklow
And gay perfusion
In god's green land
And the gypsy's rode
With their hearts on fire
They say "We love to wander,"
"Lord we love,"
"Lord we love to roam"

And as we walked
Through the streets of Arklow
In a drenching beauty
Rolling back 'til the day
And I saw your eyes
They was shining, sparkling crystal clear
And our souls were clean
And the grass did grow
And our souls were clean
And the grass did grow
And our souls were clean
And the grass did grow

And as we walked
Through the streets of Arklow

    General Commentand since it wasn't commented on, i feel no burden or shame in posting my complete posting, as i was not finished. anyhow, it stuns me that this song wasn't commented on before i. this is my favorite van morrison song...really, it's the only van morrison song that i enjoy thoroughly (other than BEG which is a classic). nonetheless, the meaning is simply in the song...as are most songs, actually.
