Original Poems

Lochlannach

Invaders

The Minnesota Ulgingeach
Could be called the Lochlannach
And no one could object
Unless old Gaelic was their crosstalk

The power of words resides not in
The sounds, which are just noises;
But in their meanings, and in how
They influence our choices

Much feared the Ascomanni
And a great bane were the Dene;
No one fears them now, for few
Will know what these words mean
