Charm for stock on the moor

“The charm placed of Brigit
About her neat, about her kine,
About her horses, about her goats,
About her sheep, about her lambs:

Each day and each night
In heat and cold
Each early and late
In darkness and light;

To keep them from marsh,
To keep them from rock,
To keep them from pit,
To keep them from bank…”

from ‘Carmina Gadelica’ number 368, Carmichael , p.339/40.
