A Mhairgréag, cuimhnigh ar ngaol


[Mac Niocaill, Gearóid: Duanaire Ghearóid Iarla (Studia Hibernica, 3, 1963, 7ff.), poem 26]


1 A Mhairgréag, cuimhnigh ar ngaol;

ná bí-se go maoth ’mo cheann;

mar do ghabh romhéad ar ngaoil

tabhair dod aoidh, a thaobh seang.


2 Agat féin ó tharla a fhios

mat atáim ar shliocht síl mBriain,

a gcearda ní bhiú ’gá gceilt:

gach bráthair do bheith ’ga shiair.


3 Mac Mhéig Carrthaigh dhíolas baird

ráinig in gach aird a ghnaoi;

a sheansáith don ionmhain mhóir

nocha dom dheoin ná fuil faoi. A.


4 Ag so, a Mhuire, dhuit mo chíos;

ullamh mé dá íoc do ghnáth;

rann iarchomhairc ar gach laoidh

tabhair dot aoidh....
