Cúirt an hean-Oíche

Brian

Ba ghnáth mé ag siúl le ciumhais na h-abhann,
Ar bháinseach úr 'san drúcht go trom,
In aice na gcoillte i gcoim an tsléibhe,
Gan mhairg, gan mhoill le soilse an lae.
Do ghealadh mo chroí nuair chínn Loch Gréine,
An talamh, an tír, is íor na spéire:
Ba thaithneamhach aoibhinn suíomh na sléibhte,
Ag bagairt a gcinn thar dhroim a chéile.
Do ghealadh an croí a bhí críon le cianta,
Caite gan bhrí nó líonta i bpianta;
An séithleach searbh gan sealbh gan saibhreas
D'fhéachfadh tamall thar bharra na gcoillte
An lachain 'na scuainte ar chuan gan ceo,
'S an eala ar a bhfuaid 's í ag gluaiseacht leo,
Na h-éisc le meidhir ag éirí in áirde,
Péirse im radharc go taibhseach tarrbhreac,
Dath an locha agus gorm na dtonn
Ag teacht go tolgach, torannach, trom.
