Buidheach me do Mhág Uidhir


[Greene, David: Duanaire Mhéig Uidhir, Dublin, 1972, poem 3]


1 Buidhioch me do Mhág Uidhir,

tig gan fhios dom ionnsuighidh;

ní lem’ thechtaire as a th[o]igh

rí as nertmhaire ar [... ]aibh.

2 Gach uair dar thriallus ’na theach

fuarus duais á mbím buidhioch;

in uair bhím gan triall dá thigh

do-chím a riar [..................].

3 A mhac samhla riamh roimhe

ní fhaca ar feadh m’aimsire;

ré lán nár dondadh a dhreach

atám dá bhronnadh buidheach.
