Now don`t it make my brown eyes blue?
(only joking-it`s not funny)
The writer offers a crumb of comfort to a friend spurned in love...

Uaibhse,mo mhuintir,a d`fhulaing anro agus cruatan,
iarraim maithiunas,
Uaibhse nar bhlas ariamh bia Sineach na fion iasachta,
Nar chaith culaith dhomhnaigh dhomhanda na broga leathair,
Nar shantaigh riamh ach a raibh tuillte agaibhse de cheart sna` muillte sniomhachain, dorcha, gruama a ndearnadh dubhsclabhaiochta iontu,iarraim maithiunas.
Cosnochta sa chulchabhsa a sheasann sibh anois,bealdruidte,
ag stanadh ar mheath mo mhaoinse,`chan le suile ocracha ach le suile De,
An Dia ceanna a thug faoiseamh sa deireadh daoibhse,
Dia nach bhfeicfidh mo leitheidse gan searbhas bhur bpian a bhlaiseadh go hiomlan,deich nuaire chomh fada libhse..
Iarraim maithiunas,guigi orainne,glunta na bhfuioll.

Do Aoileann Ni Pharthalain

Codail ar do chneadh,a dheirfiur dhil,
Gidh gur chodladh corrach craite e.
An leannan a ghoin go smior thu,
niorbh e a d`fhag gan chiall tu,
ach uabhar goil do bhanulacht.
Beidh an la leatsa a Aoilinn!
Is iomai sui ata sa bhuaile agatsa!

Turn the other cheek,sister,
even though your lovely head is bowed,
It wasn`t that so called `lover`who hurt you,
but the wounded pride of your womanhood.
You`ll have the last laugh,Aoileann,
You`ve got more to offer than that blind fool
could ever conceive of!
