Ayeweys on Wur Mind

The poem Àdhamh read was “Tha ball-ratha sìnte riut” by Alasdair mac Mhaighstir Alasdair. Many thanks to Dr. Michael Newton for permission to use his copyrighted English translation of the poem, which appears in his book The Naughty Little Book of Gaelic. (Do check out Dr. Newton’s own blog, The Virtual Gael.)

There is a lucky limb stretched against you

That has made a thousand conquests:

An excellent penis that is leathery, well-equipped,

Sharp-pointed, piercing, firm,

Lubricated, sinewy, chanter-like,

Strong, durable, long-enduring,

Vigorous, powerful, joyous,

That would not jilt either soft or hard (body).
