Ba mhaith liom cabhrú leat trasna an bhóthair.

agus má chloiseann tú dom éisteacht leat mo thost.
Ní bheidh mé glaoch ar an bíosún.
Scaip do sciatháin iarr sé.
Ní féidir liom a shealbhú do lámh.
Ach liom a shamhlú cad a d’fhéadfadh sé gur mhaith leat.
Ba mhaith liom cabhrú leat trasna an bhóthair.
( Beatrice Jarvis)
and if you hear me you hear my silence.
I will not call the buffalo.
Spread your wings he asked.
I cannot hold your hand.
Yet I imagine what it might feel like.
I want to help you cross the road.
