I have a hut in a wood; only my Lord knows it; an ash tree closes it on one side and a hazel like a great tree by a rath on the other.
The size of my hut, small, not too small a homestead with familiar paths. From its gable a she-bird sings a sweet song in her thrush’s cloak.
A tree of apples of great bounty like a mansion, stout; a pretty bush, thick as a fist, of small hazel nuts, branching and green.
Fair white birds come, herons, seagulls, the sea sings to them, no mournful music; brown grouse from the russet heather.
The sound of the wind against a branching wood, grey cloud, riverfalls, the cry of swan, delightful music!

For want of the battle, the kingdom was lost;
And all from the want of a horseshoe nail.

All through the night
Dark the path that we are treading

To the dawn our footsteps turning,

Remember, o friend, your end.
Now you are strong and fit, filled with ambition, boasting of your achievements, but all your success is a mere passing shadow.
Remember you are made of clay, and to clay you will return.
Now you are healthy and handsome, filled with energy, proud of your work; but all your joys are mere passing shadows.
Remember your life is the breath of God, which at death will depart.
Now your life on earth is solid and stable, but soon it will dissolve, your body crumbling to dust.
Remember, o friend, your end.
