To Fand, fair Fand, I offer my praise. Goddess
of the cold blue sea, shining one, glorious one,
luminous as a perfect pearl, bittersweet
as a love long lost, pure as a sole salt tear,
I honor your ancient beauty, your depth of feeling,
your generous heart, O wise and knowing one.
Bride of Manannan, beloved of Cuchulainn,
woman of the otherworld, you know your worth,
you know your heart, your honor knows no compromise.
In all the worlds no woman is your equal,
O Fand of the distant isles; in all the worlds
no finer spirit may be found, O goddess.
