The Rose of Tralee
She is selected to represent her county or country,
The title Rose of Tralee is her bounty,
She must be of good character and single,
Her family and friends flock to support her and help her mingle.


The Rose of Tralee by Annette Dunlea                          

She is selected to represent her county or country,

The title Rose of Tralee is her bounty,

She must be of good character and single,

Her family and friends flock to support her and help her mingle.

                                II

For a week intensive interviews and appointments she attends,

It culminates onstage interviewed by a TV celebrity on which it depends,

A designer ball gown she wares,

She dances or sings her party piece and her ambitions she declares.

                                III

The panel selects the winner for the title Rose of Tralee,

A trophy, a cheque, a modeling contract she accepts with glee,

Her crown is placed upon her head and to her The Rose of Tralee is sung,

Her task is to represent Ireland at home and abroad with graceful elegance among.
