Local Asshole Now Local Asshole With Blog: The Twisted Brain Wrong of a One-Off Man-Mental
Stupid question #1: is that an osprey?Stupid question #2: any chance of some kind of translation? (I know that is a particularly stupid question, as you would have written it in English if that is what you meant.)
A peregrine, an fabhcún gorm. Are there ospreys in Donegal? I don't know.An impromptu translation of that haiku (and thank you asking) might go:Falls a shadow fromthe hawk's bright beak. Mouse in thegorse's heart trembles.
Thank you. And you kept the syllabics in the translation. (Is fabhcún cognate with falcon? (A wise falcon??)) I don't know a hawk from a handsaw.I just looked it up: there used to be ospreys in Donegal but they were hunted out.
