Seanfhalla April 19, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Poetry & Humor.


le Gabriel Rosenstock

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 é ?
Gasta nó mall?
Nó iad a bheith ina stad ?

Look at that old concrete wall there
Being warmed in the sun
It won’t be long before the ants come out
and dance for you

What would you like ?
Fast or slow ?
or for them to stand still ?

I hope the translation is accurate – I did my best. A nice, simple poem, I think …
