#AtoZchallenge #NaPoWriMo Z: Zephyranthes

From the Zephyranthes bulb
Sprout the fairy lilies
Ready to dance in the rain
And make magic-dilys


 

Z: Zephyranthes

There is not a ‘z’ in the Irish Gaelic alphabet so this poem is in English, still keeping with the flower theme. #AtoZChallange #NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo

#AtoZchallenge #NaPoWriMo U: Uisce

Tugann uisce beatha a síol;
Tugann uisce beatha a dhuille;
Tugann uisce beatha a dath;
Tugann uisce beatha a bláth;
Tugann uisce beatha ar an ngairdín;
Tugann uisce beatha a aoibh gháire.

(translation)
Water gives life to a seed;
Water gives life to a leaf;
Water gives life to color;
Water gives life to a flower;
Water gives life to the garden;
Water gives life to a smile.

go bhfuil siad réidh le haghaidh an stoirm

a painted row of tulips
standing in the garden like soldiers
a painted row of tulips
ready for battle;
a painted row of tulips
ready for the storm
