Chi Mi Buam by Karen Matheson

I asked a friend of mine who studies Celtic languages to have a go at the translation of this song. This is what she came up with. I thought I'd share!

I see from me, far from me
I see from me to high-tide
I see Mull of the cold mountains
Far from me across the seas
Far from me across the seas

I see the tops of the big mountains
In the brave dawn
The height of each one of them is excessive
And a cloud of mist on top
Far from me across the seas

I see a bud upon the heather
I see the rowan tree in bloom
I see clear water of the mountains
Coming in haste with each mound
Far from me across the seas

Land of the treetops, land of the waves
Tis often its wool on you, the bard
And when I gave you my back (When I left you, I assume this means)
I awoke boldly
And left with the wool on you still

I see from me, far from me
I see from me to high-tide
I see Mull of the cold mountains
Far from me across the seas
Far from me across the seas
