    “Le uisg is le grian, bidh sinn uile a’ fàs. Gheibh sinn latha agus oidhche, gheibh sinn beatha is tàmh.”
    Seo an t-òran a bhios Seanair a’ gabhail a h-uile latha nuair a bhios e fhèin agus ogha a-muigh a’ cur sìol. Gabhaidh na bliadhnaichean seachad agus fàsaidh na craobhan nan coille fhad ‘s a dh’fhàsas am balach àrd agus làidir. Tha Seanair a’ fàs aosta agus às dèidh latha dòigheil, mus tèid e a ghabhail tàmh, bheir e am poca sìl do ogha. Tuigidh esan a-nise gum feum e cumail suas òran a sheanair.

    "With rain and sun, we all grow. We will have day and night, we will have life and rest. ”
    This is the song that Grandfather sings every day when he and his grandson are out planting. The years go by and the trees grow into a forest as the boy grows tall and strong. Grandpa grows old and after a good day, before he can rest, he gives his grandson the bag of seeds. He now realizes that he has to keep up his grandfather's song.
