Buile Suibhne (Author: [unknown])

paragraph 34


    1. O woman, who dost recognize me
      with the points of thy blue eyes,
      there was a time when my aspect was better
      in the assembly of Dal Araidhe.
    2. I have changed in shape and hue
      since the hour I came out of the battle;
      I was the slender Suibhne
      of whom the men of Erin had heard.
    3. Bide thou with thy husband and in thy house,
      I shall not tarry in Ros Bearaigh;
      until holy Judgment we shall not foregather,
      I and thou, O woman.
