Oíche Shamhna sona dhaoibh!

Scél lemm dúib:
dordaid dam,
snigid gaim,
ro-fáith sam.

(Translation: I have news for you: the stag bells, winter snows, summer is ended.)

in honor of mí dheireadh fómhair

In the other gardens
And all up the vale,
From the autumn bonfies
See the smoke trail!
Pleasant summer over
And all the summer flowers,
The red fire blazes,
the grey smoke towers.
Sing a song of seasons!
Something bright in all,
Flowers in the summer
Fires in the fall!
-- "Autumn Fires" by Robert Louis Stevenson
