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

ANSEO...CHÓNAĺ ONMAR!

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

éan

thuas

sa spéir.

***

HERE WE DWELL

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.
