The Song of Amergin
am the wind on the sea,
I am a wave on the ocean,
I am the roar of the sea,
I am an ox of seven exiles,
I am a hawk on a cliff,
I am a tear of the sun,
I am a turning in a maze,
I am a boar in valour,
I am a salmon in a pool,
I am a lake on a plain,
I am a dispensing power,
I am a spirit of skilful gift,
I am a grass-blade giving decay to the earth,
I am a creative god giving inspiration.
Who else clears the stones of the mountain?
Who is it who declaims the sun's arising?
Who is it who tells where the sun sets?
Who brings cattle from the house of Tethra?
Upon whom do the cattle of Tethra smile?
Who is this ox?
Who is the weaving god who mends the thatch of wounds?
The incantation of a spear,
The incantation of the wind.
