I found this, and thought it would be a good thing for the people that want to give reading Gildhig without pronounciation guides a chance. If you want a guide, let me know and I'll post one up. I'll be adding different poems here every so often.


A' Cheiste

"Carson," their iad,
" a chaitheas tu d' m a' danamh dhn?
B' fherr dhuit, air a' cheann thall,
a bhith ri ceird eile."

An ceann thall
dhomhsa
a rir a slat-thomhais-san.

Ghineadh dhomh faillean,
sprn dhiamhair;
dh'fhas e tromham craobhach;
chuir mi romham gum fsadh e dreach

gus buil thoirt air slatan fiara.

Victor Price

Translation

Question

"Why," they say,
"do you spend your time making poems?
It would benefit you more, in the end,
to practise another trade."

The end
for me
measured by their yardsticks.

A tree was for me engendered
by some mysterious striving;
its branches spread through me;
I decided it should grow undeformed

to overcome deviant yardsticks.

Victor Price
