Maedb Desires A Bull

All I have, has my husband, and a lot has he
As have I, but yet my husband has more than me
A bull, a prize bull, like none to be seen
In my herd, it was heard, it once had been
But it fled, or was led, to my husbands herd
So I must, and I will, and let it be heard
Have a bull, have the bull, of equal strength and of worth
In Ulster, in Cooley, in rage hooves the dirt
By the Gods, and by force, by the roads we set out
Till I greet in my fields Cooley’s bull by mouth.
