Gliong Gliong: A Gaelic poem with translation


GAELIC
1a. AN DAOLAG DHEARG BHREAC

Peiteag bhreac
Na sgiathan aig daolg
A' stÒladh
Far an crochadh
Currac-na-cuthaig
An daolag dhearg bhreac
Mar an nìban
Tha thu mar driog
De fhuil sgiathach

Gliong gliong

sìos bidh thu a tuiteam
A'stÒIadh, gu 'ailleasach
Air a' bhalla


ENGLISH
1b: LADYBIRD

Spotted vest
Bug's wings
Resting
Where the bluebell
Hangs

Ladybird,
Ruby-red
You 're a drop
Of flying blood

Pitter-patter
Down you fall
Settling, dainty
On the wall.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.
