Rev. Hector Cameron, p 432:

Siar i o’n traigh gu sail an Rudha,
O’m Fhang ge guineach a’ ghaoth;
A stigh mar a b’ aill gu ban Phuill – a – Mhanaich,
’S gun dail fo Charragh Phuirt-Staoin
Bha Conslum fo sroin is ceol na cruithean
Bha deonach ’mireag ri ’taobh;
’S aig Craignis fadheoidh an seol mu ’claigeann,
’S mo sheoid-sa dhachaidh le saod.
