Anseo...Chónaĺ Onmar! (Here...We Dwell) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey


Thuas sna sléibhte
thios sa ghleann

i measc na gcrann
na duilleoga ar na crainn

amuigh ar an loch

níl a fhios agam ach...

aisteach ciúin millteanach

agus ar ngrá



sa spéir.



Up in the mountains
down in the glen

in the forest
the leaves on the trees

out on the lake

I don’t know but...

a wonderful strange silence

and our love

...bird high in the air.

    This has a very soft, gentle sound...almost an Oriental flavor...like an Irish rain...
    or a blessing? Thanks for this one.
