Brighid, Patroness of Poets

‘Feill na Bride, feis na finne.’
Bride binn nam bas ban.’
‘A Bhride chaoin cheanail, Is caoimh liom anail
do bheoil, ’D uair reidhinn air m’ aineol Bu to
fein ceann eisdeachd mo sgeoil.’

Feast of the Bride, feast of the maiden.
Melodious Bride of the fair palms.
Thou Bride fair charming,
Pleasant to me the breath of thy mouth,
When I would go among strangers ‘
Thou thyself wert the hearer of my tale.

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