There is a much different setting of this tune in Bunting. And each of Beethoven did an arrangement of words to it, and Moore also word words for it.

Re: Planxty Kelly

The setting by Thomas Moore is called "Fly Not Yet". It turns up in the Winder manuscripts.

Fly not yet, tis just the hour, When pleasure, like the midnight ower
That scorns the eye of vulgar light, Begins to bloom for sons of night,
And maids who love the moon.

Twas but to bless the hours of shade That beauty and the moon were made;
Tis then their soft attractions glowing , Set the tides and goblets flowing.
Oh! stay, Oh! stay,

Joy that seldom weaves a chain, Like this to-night, that oh, tis pain.
To break its links so soon.

Fly not yet, the fount that played, In times of old through Ammons shade,
Though icy cold by day it ran, Yet still, like souls of mirth, began,
To burn when night was near.

And thus, should womans heart and looks, At noon be cold as winter brooks,
Nor kindle till the night, returning, Brings their genial hour for burning.
Oh! stay, Oh! stay,

When did morning ever break, And find such beaming eyes awake
As those that sparkle here?

Nice words..
