Plúiríní Sneachta

by Administrator 21. September 2008 13:25

This is a poem about the humle snowdrop, head powed as it apologetically appears through the January snows. It is the harbinger of Spring, the messenger of hope.

Plúiríní sneachta
Péarlaí beaga cúthaile
Bán i bhfuacht lae
Náireach ina nochtaine-
Á ceilt i gclúdach tréad

Umhlaíocht ag bogadh
A gceann i ngaireacht cré
Ní ardaíonn riamh a n-aghaidh
Chun a n-áilleachtaí a spré.

Ní lonaíonn orthu féileacán
Ná beach ar lorg meala
Iad sáite mar phríosúnaigh
Faoi údarás ag sceacha

Ach aithnímse a n-áilleachtaí
Folaithe i gciúnas caoin
Is fáiltím roimh a n-óige
Ar theacht don nua-bhliain.

Bláithín faiteach simplí
I bhfíochmhaireacht geimhridh
Ag léiriú lena shuaimhneas
Gurb é toscaire an earraigh

Mé seargtha ag domhan
suaite Le cumhacht agus maoin
Ach iompród chun mo chúnta
Mo phlúirín sneachta séimh.

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.
