Lúb ar Lár and other poems by Máire Dinny Wren. Original Irish versions followed by English translations by Máire Dinny Wren and Kathryn Daily

Ar an Chladach Dhearóil

Is cuimhin liom a bheith ag snámh,
Is cuimhin liom a bheith ar an tanalacht,
Is cuimhin liom a bheith ar an doimhneacht,
Is cuimhin liom a bheith i mbéal cuain.

Ní cuimhin liom an t-uisce á thruailliú,
Ní cuimhin liom ag ithe micreachoirníní,
Ní cuimhin liom mo shláinte ag meath,
Ní cuimhin liom a bheith cloíte.

Is cuimhin liom a bheith ar ghrinneall na habhna,
Is cuimhin liom a bheith ag léimtí as an uisce,
Is cuimhin liom na hiascairí ar an bhruach,
Is cuimhin liom a bheith ag snámh in éadan an easa.

Ní cuimhin liom na lanntracha á scoitheadh,
Ní cuimhin liom cár chaill mé na heití,
Ní cuimhin liom ag fás cnámha saorga,
Ní cuimhin liom an claochlú.
