happiness doesn’t need a funeral

S coma nair no àit’ ar n-eung dhuinn

‘S greadhnachas gun fheum ar tòrraidh.


The time or place of our death doesn’ t matter,

since happiness doesn’ t need a funeral.


Bàrdachd Mhgr. Ailein. The Gaelic Poems of Fr Allan MacDonald.

Transcribed, translated and published by John Lorne Campbell; 1965
