The time of nineteen kings successively lasted the live
Of Mog Ruith in battle:
From Ruth mc. Rigo - whose fame enormous -
to the angry raging Cairpri Liphechar.

A tree branch in the Alpine mountains to cut down
For the cows of Simon in the snow,
this is what broke his one great eye.
Ten years he spent with Simon.
