Buile Suibhne (Author: [unknown])

paragraph 38


    1. O hag of yonder mill,
      why shouldst thou set me astray?
      is it not deceitful of thee that, through women,
      I should be betrayed and lured?

    The hag:

    1. Tis not I who betrayed thee,
      O Suibhne, though fair thy fame,
      but the miracles of Ronan from Heaven
      which drove thee to madness among madmen.



    1. Were it myself, and would it were I,
      that were king of Dal Araidhe
      it were a reason for a blow across a chin;
      thou shalt not have a feast, O hag.
