Inár Measc: Amongst Us

I write between lines that do not exist,

On the margin of blank pages,

In books, as yet unpublished,

And I feel as if amongst friends

In this phantom country in which I live,

forever in the shadow of the dead.

Others of my acquaintance

In the neighbouring villages

Play music but have no instruments,

Compose words

In an ancient language

That lived and declined in another age.
