2-Mise an Earagail
Danta Dunta-le Micheal Mac Coisdeala

No b`fheidir "Mise an t-Earagail!"Deir daoine o Thir Chonaill liom go bhfuil se firinscneach ag bun agus baininscneach ag barr!

The guitar owner is myself circa 1978

A poem where Errigal Mountain in Donegal tells its own story.

Mise an Earagail,Is cuimhne liom imeacht na n-Iarla fado,
Mise an Earagail,Chonaic me an chead drong Sasanach a` teacht,
`gus cabhlach na spainne `gabhail go toin,
Mo sheasamh anseo le ciantaibh...

Mise an Earagail,Is cuimhne liom an t-ocras `bheith romham achan ait,
Mise an Earagail,Chonaic me mo mhuintir da scabadh soir`is siar,
A`s an bealach a dheanamh ag Rutland thiar,
Mo sheasamh anseo le ciantaibh...

Mise an Earagail,Is cuimhne liom an eilit,`n mactire a`s an fiadh,
Mise an Earagail,
Chonaic me Padraig,Colmcille agus Brid,
As Balor i dToraigh ansiud istigh,
Mo sheasamh anseo le ciantaibh...

Mise an Earagail,is cuimhne liom cuid coillte na hEireann fado,
Mise an Earagail,Ni miste liom fearthainn,sneachta na ceo,
Ni bheidh me ag Gaeltarra anois no go deo,
ach mo sheasamh anseo le ciantaibh...

Mise an Earagail,Ta ceo ar mo shuile le fada an la,
Mise an Earagail,
Ta moin i mo chluasa,nach meanar domsa,
Tchimse na fir bhui a`s a gcuid gcapall fa`n loch,
Nar fheice me an t-ollscamaill thart orm go brach,

Mise an Earagail...Micheal Mac Coisdeala 1972

D`Albert a raibh lamh aige ann.
