Answers

Eamon an Chnoic

Cé h-é sin amuigh a bhfuil faobhar ar a ghuth
Ag réabadh mo dhorais dhúnta ?
Mise Éamonn an Chnoic atá báite fuar fliuch
O shíorshiúl sléibhte is gleannta.
A lao ghil is a chuid céard a dhéanfainnse dhuit
Muna gcuirfinn ort binn de mo ghúna ?
Is go bhfuil púdar go tiubh á shíorshéideadh leat
Is go mbeimis araon múchta .

Is fada mise amuigh faoi shneachta is faoi shioc
Is gan dánacht agam ar aon neach.
Mo sheisreach gan scor, mo bhranar gan cur
Agus gan iad agam ar aon chor.
Níl cara agam is danaid liom san
Do ghlacfadh mé moch nó déanach
Is go gcaithfidh mé dul thar farraige soir
Ó is ann nach bhfuil aon de mo ghaolta.
