Balthus
gan éinne ina dhúiseacht
ach mé féin is leamhan ...
solas a chéile
no one awake
but myself and a moth . . .
the light of one another
κανένας ξύπνιος
μόνον εγώ και ο σκόρος...
φως ο ένας του άλλου

aimsir gharbh . . .
tá glór na ngéanna
ag eitilt ó dheas
harsh weather . . .
the sound of geese
is flying south
άγριος καιρός . . .
το πέταγμα της χήνας
ηχεί στον νότο

fulaingt na gcrann . . .
is eol dóibhsean leis
oíche dhuairc an anama
suffering of trees . . .
they too know the dark night
of the soul
πόνος των δέντρων . . .
τη σκοτεινή γνωρίζουν
νύχτα της ψυχής

Dylan: Creidimse thú


Fiafraíonn siad i mo thaobh,
Grá fíor mo ghrá, nó saobh
An éireoidh liom teacht slán arú
Agus, breathnaíonn siad orm go tur
Agus an ruaig orm á cur
Ba mhaith leo mé a scor
Mar go gcreidimse thú

Siod é an bóthar romhat
Is ná tar ar ais níos mó!
Mar nílimse i mo bhall dá gcriú
Agus amach liom faoin ngréin
I bhfad i bhfad i gcéin
Ach nílimse liom fhéin
Mar go gcreidimse thú

Mar creidimse thú fiú i measc na ndeor is an gháire
Mar creidimse thú fiú má táimid beirt scartha
Mar creidimse thú fiú ar maidin lá arna mhárach
Ó, is an lá ag breacadh
Ó, is an dorchacht ag scaipeadh
Ó, mothaímse é i gcónaí im’ lár.

Ná lig dom dul ar fán
Fanfad leat go brách
Is beidh mé seasta síoraí úr
An méid a fuaireas uait le mo linn
An grá nár chosain aon phínn
Siollaí uait ag teacht go binn
Mar creidimse thú

Mar creidimse thú, an geimhreadh ina shamhradh
Mar creidimse thú, ’s an dubh ina gheal
Mar creidimse thú cé gur líonmhar iad mo naimhde
Ó, ag an domhan seo céasta
Ó, ag mo chairde tréigthe
Ó, níor leor sin chun é a chur ar ceal. 


Ná lig dom’ phort athrú
Coinnigh mé inniu
Ó chleasa a chuirfeadh mé amú
Ó is cuma liom faoin bpian
An bháisteach atá dian
Mar domsa ’s tú an ghrian
Mar go gcreidimse thú.

I Believe In You

 They ask me how I feel
 And if my love is real
 And how I know I’ll make it through
 And they, they look at me and frown
 They’d like to drive me from this town
 They don’t want me around
 ’Cause I believe in you

 They show me to the door
 They say don’t come back no more
 ’Cause I don’t be like they’d like me to
 And I walk out on my own
 A thousand miles from home
 But I don’t feel alone
 ’Cause I believe in you

 I believe in you even through the tears and the laughter
 I believe in you even though we be apart
 I believe in you even on the morning after
 Oh, when the dawn is nearing
 Oh, when the night is disappearing
 Oh, this feeling is still here in my heart

 Don’t let me drift too far
 Keep me where you are
 Where I will always be renewed
 And that which you’ve given me today
 Is worth more than I could pay
 And no matter what they say
 I believe in you

 I believe in you when winter turn to summer
 I believe in you when white turn to black
 I believe in you even though I be outnumbered
 Oh, though the earth may shake me
 Oh, though my friends forsake me
 Oh, even that couldn’t make me go back

 Don’t let me change my heart
 Keep me set apart
 From all the plans they do pursue
 And I, I don’t mind the pain
 Don’t mind the driving rain
 I know I will sustain
 ’Cause I believe in you

má ba phianmhar í mo bhreith
aon fhocal nó gníomh . . .
pardún, a mháithrín
if my birth pained you
or any word or deed ...
mother, forgive me
αν σε πόνεσε η γέννα
λόγος μου ή πράξη . . .
μαμά, συγγνώμη

Briathra an Bhúda

Uttiṭṭhe! Nappamajjeyya!

Dhammaṃ sucaritaṃ care.
Dhammacārī sukhaṃ seti
asmiṃ loke paramhi ca.
 
 
Éist leis an mbun-Pháilis:
Éirigh! Ná bí ar nós cuma liom!
Caith do shaol i gceart.
An té a chaitheann a shaol i gceart
beidh sé sona sa saol seo agus sa saol atá le teacht.
