Is é d’iarr mo stór orm ligean den ól, Nó nach mbeinnse beo ach seal beag gearr; Ach dúirt mé léi go dtug sí an bhréag, Is gurbh fhada mo shaolsa an deoch úd a fháil; An bhfaca sibh éan an phíopáin réidh A chuaigh in éag den tart ar ball? 42 Is a chomharsain chléibh, fliuchaidh bhur mbéal, Óir chan fhaigheann sibh braon i ndiaidh bhur mbáis! 43 THE YELLOW BITTERN (TRANSLATION OF AN BONNÁN BUÍ BY CATHAL BUÍ MAC GIOLLA GUNNA) The yellow bittern that never broke out In a drinking bout, might as well have drunk; His bones are thrown on a naked stone Where he lived alone like a hermit monk.

Is measa liom féin ná scrios na Traoí, Tú bheith gan bhrí ar leaca lom Is nach ndearna tú díth ná dolaidh san tír Is nárbh fhearr leat fíon ná uisce poill. A bhonnáin álainn, is é mo mhíle crá thú, Do chúl ar lár amuigh rómham sa tslí, Is gurbh iomaí lá a chluininn do ghrág Ar an láib is tú ag ól na dí.
