Pursue the dark-brown deer of Cromla: stop with thine arrows the bounding roes of Lena.

    Fionia's charms Sustain'd the glory which they lost in arms. No wonder though I should be sad, As I sit on this mound, Patrick. By his name they call the glen, Sad for those he left behind. Chiefest of all our griefs! Why in the circle of stones? The hills, the rocks reply.

    Fix it on high within my hall, the armor of my foe! Trenar, graceful Trenar died, O maid of Inistore! She found her youth in all his blood; she died on Cromla's heath. Labhar, loud, noisy. The rest lay in the heath of the deer, and slept beneath the dusky wind. Let dark Cuthullin yield to him, that is strong as the storms of his land!
