Cánu Ri hAlechanría // Song For Alexandria

Gwer nherthach có hAthína
 Ach gwer shuprith có in hamthrevwár,
 O richí esi ti anwíthu.
 Ti-esi chwísu héth có in téi’livr mói í-esi,
 Ach argha ti gwer ghlis có in téi’lóchu mói.
 Éithr cárna ti 
 ráthé gwer wár có ráthé in gwerdhun Céitbéi,
 Ach gála mi echanal gwel dres ichís.
 Névíthu gwéla mi có himeth có bonch esi mi canith.
 Mentháia mi tarith có rhé ghalsí mi consái in bíthu.
 Dicheltha in Alechanría enith in Alechaner enim.

Stronger than Athena
 And more beautiful than the city,
 For which you are named.
 You hold more wisdom than the Great Library,
 And shine brighter than the Great Lighthouse.
 But you build walls higher than those of the Citadel of Qaytbay,
 And I can only want to climb them. 
 I never want more than when I am with you. 
 You make me feel as if I can conquer the world. 
 The Alexandria in you brings out the Alexander in me.
