Cnagaire

This is a poem about the death of a partner and the effects it had on the daily life of an old lady. 

Seanbhean seirgthe
I liath -aois a saoil
Caol,cúng, cromtha
I smaointe a mblianta.
Ina seasamh ar chosán lae
A teaichín srathaigh,cúlsráide,
I bhfolach ó dheifriúlacht mhaoin'.
Féachann sí uaithí
Ar bhallaí sleabhctha
A bhíodh bán
Le díogras a pósta.

A grá geal le C.I.E.
Tiománaí bus go titim oíche
B'aoibhinn a fhilleadh trathnóna
Is ba bhinn ceol an chnagaire
Nuair a bhuailfeadh sé go bródúil.
A chaipín píce bainte de
Iad beirt ag tnúth le póigín
Ar oscailt an dorais dí.
Ó na scéalta bóthar
Is é ina shuí
Chun béile réití
I ngrá a croí……

Taom croí a thóg é
Óna taobh san oíche
Thóg sí anuas an cnagaire
Ní chloisfear é a choíche.

About the author

I love  writing poems in the Irish language. Most of my conversations/communications are usually in Irish as it is my favourite language in all the world.  I live in the west of Ireland, enjoying the wind, the rain and the rare glimpses of the sun.  I love the sound of the sea and the constant singing of birds and these are echoed in my verses.  I have published three books of poetry: 'Cúinne na mBard', 'Cumar na mBard' and 'An Teacht amach' with Coiscéim.  The last title has a long story behind it that I will save for another day.  I regard myself as a bard rather than a poet because most of my verses are about practical things, ordinary people and places rather than the mystic and the mysterious even though there's a touch of that here and there in some poems.  I am really just a learner in this field so bear with me and enjoy the reading as I do the writing.
