Brighid as Hearth Tender (prayer for smooring the fire)

CAIRIDH mi an tula,
Mar a chaireadh Muire,
Claim Bhride ’s Mhuire,
Car an tula ’s car an lair,
’S car an ardraich uile.

I WILL build the hearth,
As Mary would build it.
The encompassment of Bride and of Mary,
Guarding the hearth, guarding the floor,
Guarding the household all.

Carmina Gadelica, Volume 1, by Alexander Carmicheal, [1900]
