The Lion and the Three Bulls Yn Lion as ny Tree Terriu
George Fyler Townsend Edward Faragher
English Manx
THREE BULLS for a long time pastured together. Va three terriu son traa liauyr gyndyr cooidjagh.
A Lion lay in ambush in the hope of making them his prey, but was afraid to attack them while they kept together. Va lion lhie ayns cooill jerkal dy jannoo ad e cragh, agh v'eh agglit dy huittym orroo ooilley cooidjagh.
Having at last by guileful speeches succeeded in separating them, he attacked them without fear as they fed alone, and feasted on them one by one at his own leisure. Ec-y-jerrey lesh goan foalsey ren eh scarrey ad, eisht huitt eh orroo fegooish aggle myr va'n gyndyr nyn lomarcan, as jannoo giens orroo, ger lurg fer, ayns e hraa hene.
Union is strength. Ta unnaneys niart.
