Neilínn Choilm Sheáin

Tá aithne anois ar fad agaibh ar Néilinn Choilm Sheáin.
An lady ghoid an puirsín uaim trátnonín Domhnach Cásg.
Ní raibh falach ar a craiceann de léine no de sheal.
Is tá sí anois chomh gléasta le nurse as Dún na nGáll.
II
Gur ar do thórramh a chaithtear é mar tusa a rinne an feáll.
Go gcaithtear le tobac leat é le coinnle is lé cláir.
Nár fhágh tú choidhche maitheamnas ó Mhac Ríogh na nGrást.
Nó go gcuiridh tú ar ais cugam an puirsín is é lán.
III
Dhá mbeadh mo dóthain fios agam is fadó chuirfinn cáil.
Chuirfinn anonn go London Shasana é is ar ais go Dún na nGáll.
