I. Irish

          I AM the wind which breathes upon the sea,
          I am the wave of the ocean,
          I am the murmur of the billows,
          I am the ox of the seven combats,
          I am the vulture upon the rocks,        5
          I am a beam of the sun,
          I am the fairest of plants,
          I am a wild boar in valor,
          I am a salmon in the water,
          I am a lake in the plain,        10
          I am a word of science,
          I am the point of the lance of battle,
          I am the God who creates in the head [i.e., of man] the fire [i.e., the thought].
Who is it who throws light into the meeting on the mountain [if not I]?
Who announces the ages of the moon [if not I]?        15
Who teaches the place where couches the sun [if not I]?
