Bratacha Bána

Gabriel Rosenstock

Bratacha Bána

Tá bratach Mheiriceá
ar an ngealach
iompaithe bán,
tuartha ag an ngrian.
Ní faic anois iad
na réaltaí, na stríoca,
brionglóid.

Lá breá gréine
is beidh gach brat tréigthe.
White Flags

The American flag
on the moon
has turned white,
bleached by the sun.
The stars and stripes
are nothing now,
a dream.

Some sunny day
all flags will go that way.
