AM BEANNACHD LOMBAIDH [108]

Falbh lom's thig molach, Beir am boirionn Bealltain, Bride mhin a bhi dha d' chonaill, Moire gheal dha t' aurais, Moire gheal dha t' aurais.
Micheal mil a bhi dha d' dhion Bho 'n mhi-chu is bho 'n an-chu, Bho 'n mhac-tir's bho 'n mhadhan stig, 'S bho ianaibh ineach call-ghob, Bho ianaibh ineach cam-ghob.

THE CLIPPING BLESSING

Go shorn and come woolly, Bear the Beltane female lamb, Be the lovely Bride thee endowing, And the fair Mary thee sustaining, The fair Mary sustaining thee.
Michael the chief be shielding thee From the evil dog and from the fox, From the wolf and from the sly bear, And from the taloned birds of destructive bills, From the taloned birds of hooked bills.
