WB Yeats: To An Isle

WB Yeats: To An Isle

I did this one in 2013 - I am sure the Sindarin version is full of mistakes, I am not a Sindarin maestro.


TO AN ISLE IN THE WATER

by: William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

SHY one, shy one,
Shy one of my heart,
She moves in the firelight
Pensively apart.
             
She carries in the dishes,
And lays them in a row.
To an isle in the water
With her would I go.
             
She carries in the candles,
And lights the curtained room,
Shy in the doorway
And shy in the gloom;
             
And shy as a rabbit,
Helpful and shy.
To an isle in the water
With her would I fly.



Na Dol Vi Aear

Ú-vraig, ú-vraig
Ú-vraig e-guren
E ledhia vi urgail
Idhren na chae.

E toltha I chailph
A penia chain na dê.
Ledhiad na dol vi aear
Aníron ah hen.

E toltha i chelair 
A *celia i ham chall,
Ú-vraig vi i fennas
Ar ú-vraig vi i vaur.

Ar ú-vraig sui *labad
*Tului ar ú-vraig.
Ah hen na dol vi aear
Aníron edledhiad.



Ana Tol Nenisse

Caurea, caurea
Caurea melda,
Ména ruicalasse
lorie oa.

Tulteas i yulmar,
panyasset témanna
ana tol nenisse
óse merin auta.

Tulteas i lícumar
calyas i fanwa sambe
Caurea mi fenna,
caurea mi huine;

Caurea yo asea,
caurea ve lapatte
ana tol nenisse
merin vile óse.
