Palabras de Loreena:

Octubre de 1990 - Annaghmakerrig, Irlanda, "...he estado esforzándome por crear las partes y la forma de The Visit. Me llevé varios libros de textos, poesías y otras influencias; Los Tapices del Unicornio, La Rama Dorada.
He llevado algunos textos tradicionales a música; me siento atraída por el motivo de harpa y la esencia de una fábula en la que una chica, ahogada por su hermana celosa,
vuelve primero en forma de cisne y luego se transforma en un harpa...El campo de Monaghan sería una localización ideal para una interpretacion visual, con sus lagos, bosques y su sinuoso paisaje."

Letra de la canción, (Lyrics):

A farmer there lived in the north country
a hey ho bonny o
And he had daughters one, two, three
The swans swim so bonny o
These daughters they walked by the rivers brim
a hey ho bonny o
The eldest pushed the youngest in
The swans swim so bonny o

Oh sister, oh sister, pray lend me your hand
with a hey ho a bonny o
And I will give you house and land
the swans swim so bonny o
Ill give you neither hand nor glove
with a hey ho a bonny o
Unless you give me your own tru love
the swans swim so bonny o

Sometimes she sank, sometimes she swam
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Until she came to a millers dam
the swans swim so bonny o
The millers daughter, dressed in red
with a hey ho and a bonny o
She went for some water to make some bread
the swans swim so bonny o

Oh father, oh daddy, here swims a swan
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Its very like a gentle woman
the swans swmi so bonny o
They placed her on the bank to dry
with a hey ho and a bonny o
There came a harper passing by
the swans swim so bonny o

He made harp pins of her fingers fair
with a hey ho and a bonny o
He made harp strings of her golden hair
the swans swim so bonny o
He made a harp of her breast bone
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And straight it began to play alone
the swans swim so bonny o

He brought it to her fathers hall
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And there was the court, assembled all
the swans swim so bonny o
He laid the harp upon a stone
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And straight it began to play alone
the swans swim so bonny o

And there does sit my father the King
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And yonder sits my mother the Queen
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my brother Hugh
with a hey ho and a bonny o
And by him William, sweet and true
the swans swim so bonny o
And there does sit my false sister, Anne
with a hey ho and a bonny o
Who drowned me for the sake of a man
the swans swim so bonny o
