April 2018

The new season is about a month behind…

Season’s end – and start:
dead leaf spins on a bramble;
new shoots sprout below.

Ina ghnáthphost, caróg liath ar faire…

Ag luascadh sa ghaoth,                           [Swaying in the breeze,]
ar bharr an chrainn is airde,                  [the top of the highest tree,]
Caróg ag feitheamh.                                 [a hooded crow waits.]

*************************

Níl mórán ag fás fós i mbliana…

Imreacha den donn,                                [Forty shades of brown,]
eiblíonn brat na nduilleog.                     [leaf carpet emulsifies.]
Múirín an gheimhridh.                           [Last Winter breaks down.]

March broke all the rules this year…

In like a lion;
leopards never change their spots:
Out like a lion!
