Working In A Forest

Prisciani Grammatica

This 6th century Irish poem is a beautiful image of working in a forest surrounded by bird song and nature. It is written in the margins of the Irish Priscian manuscript of St. Gallen, which is now in the monastery of St. Gall in Switzerland.

Over me green branches hang
 A blackbird leads the loud song
  Above my pen-lined booklet
   I hear a fluting bird-throng

The cuckoo pipes a clear call
 Its dun cloak hid in deep dell:
  Praise to God for his goodness
   That in woodland I write well

(translated by Maire Mac Neill)
