Mise Raifteirí An File - Poem by Antoine O Raifteiri

I am Raftery the poet,

full of hope and love
Having eyes without sight,
lonely I rove.

Going on my journeying

by my heart's light
Weary and tired
of unending night.

Take a look at me now

with my back to a wall
Singing and playing
for nothing at all
