(5) Old Wall (from Year of the Goddess)

by Gabriel Rosenstock

English version by Gabriel Rosenstock
Original Language Irish & English

Féach an seanfhalla coincréite seo
Á théamh ag an ngrian.
Is gearr go mbeidh na seangáin amuigh
Chun damhsa Duit

Cé acu ab fhearr Leat?
Gasta nó mall?
Nó iad a bheith ina stad?


Look at this old concrete wall
Being warmed by the sun.
Soon the ants will come out
To dance for You

What would You like?
Something rapid or languorous
Or that they be perfectly still?

-- from Bliain an BhandŽ - Year of the Goddess, by Gabriel Rosenstock
