Dar liom, is galar é an grádh


[Tomás Ó Rathile: Dánta Grádha, no. 50]


Maghnas Ó Domhnaill


1 Dar liom, is galar é an grádh,

gion go bhfuil fedhm a rádh ris;

croidhe eile dlighim uaidh,

an croidhe-se uaim do bhris.


2 Ós é féin is ciontach ris,

an croidhe-se thig an grádh,

meisde liom loighead a uilc,

acht nách bhfaghainn cuid dá chrádh.


3 Is truagh nách fuath thugas uaim,

is fuath d’fhagháil uaibh dá chionn;

grádh ó dhuine is mairg do-ghebh,

’s is romhairg do-bher, dar liom.
