The little red lark

First line:
Oh swan of slenderness, dove of tenderness
composer
1882 from 'Fifty Songs of Old Ireland'
author of text

 
Almost universal was The Little Red Lark which exemplifies that quintessential feature of Irish melody, the short upward scale followed by (a) a large intervallic leap upward and (b) an immediate descent.
