I WOULD LIKE

Me garje!
I WOULD LIKE

I would like to be a man
A courageous and daring man
To climb Mount Bre (1)
In my hand the Banner of my Country
—The White and Black Banner—
In my other hand a Triskell (2)
Held high in the air.
And shout at the top of my voice
To the men around:
Oho! Men of the Army!
Now the time has come
To free our Country
And to become Master in the City…

6/79

(1) In interior Brittany.
(2) A triple spiral symbol long associated with the Celts.

Translated by Lenora Timm
