Treasure Island

Maude Ni Ainnin

(1991 / Ireland)

Áit i mo Chroí


Bhí mé ag smaoineamh
faoi ​​mo theaghlach in Éirinn.

Ba mhaith liom grá chun dul ar ais go luath,
chomh luath agus is eagal liom, ní bheidh mé in ann chun iad a aithint. Mo thuismitheoirí,
ag dul in aois níos mó gach bliain le strus.

Agus fós tá mo chroí ag damhsa ach smaoineamh
mar gheall ar an boladh de na crainn,
sa choill.

Cronaím an boladh.

Bhí mé ag meadhradh ar dhaoine Éireannacha eile
ar fud an domhain nach féidir a cheadú
teacht abhaile.

Cronaím na daoine ag caint faoi
gach rud sa spéir, ag gáire le chéile.

Beidh mé ag brionglóideach anocht.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was trying to fall asleep and I could not stop thinking about returning home to Ireland soon.Also, quite oddly for me, I was thinking through Irish(Gaeilge) . I am not a native speaker.I learned Gaeilge in school for 14 years, but it has been a while.I had to check a number of things.Anyone who wishes to correct the grammar etc, go ahead!

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
