Sceilig Mhichíl

le Terri Lynk

Trasna na dtonnta áiféalta
Bád beag, bídeach, éadrom
Amach as Baile Sceilg.

Shamlaíos na manaigh bocht,
A rinne an turas sna laethanta fadó
Gan na seaicéaid Karrimor
Gan na seaicéaid tarrthala.

Slua as gach áit sa domhain
Ag dreapadóireacht suas
Na sé chéad sean-céimeanna
Go barr na carraige
Gar do Neamh,
I mbróga na manach.

Aníos is aníos ón fharraige gharbh
Go shroichimid an áit ársa,
Rúnda, spioradálta

Cad atá á lorg?
An ciúnas?
An áilleacht?
An sceitimíní?

Turas Oilithrigh nó turas caidéiseach?
