Absolutely fantastic. Thrilled.

I just received the last batch of translations for another character, so this is the last one to go! The plan is to send this off to the publisher in the next couple of days...and I can just keep adding the Gaelic while it is being proof-read.

You guys are amazing. Thank you so much. Is it too soon to add the next one? I'm truly sorry (honestly)...but seeing each step gives me a burst of adrenaline.

Again (and again): Thank you.

Yes, it's too soon to post another tranche. The last two need some reworking. I 've no time just now and there are a few things in the English which are unclear and will need explaining. I'll maybe give it a go later.

Then add I will. This one is a bit longer. It’s just that it’s the last section for the second part of the book. I do apologize…but I want this one out of the way. After this anything else will be shorter. For everyone involved so far: a HUGE thank you.

Our lives
through the eternal run.
In the world, here
what you see,
and realms hidden
where so few have seen.

“Alone you may seem
and lonely may feel,
just as the flock,
which you do guide,
there are more like you
within the city walled.
A remnant there is
in hiding,
underground
They are for war prepared,
that even darkness evil
is unable to see.
Alone are you not
this you will see.
Lutetia—
your calling will hear
but for the light
you must wait.

“The scales of justice
beyond this life are tipped,
the scales of life
unbalanced may hang.
Both shall be tipped
in all the realms we reside
when the final price is paid;
loving death in sacrifice.”

“Four stars hidden
last seen in ages past
have yet their light
unto men again to reveal.
This sign is but just one;
others, still to come.
Look to the stars,
but the depths
must not be ignored.
For there is light from above
and from depths unexpected.
The light from above
within the stars shining,
as signs to read.
The light from below
hidden in the depths
as a sign to guide.
This light from below
glitters and dances,
not that of a fire
but as ice
under the moon’s light
glistens and sparkles.”

The scales of justice
beyond this life are weighed,
the scales of life
unbalanced may be.
Both shall be tipped
in all the realms
in which we reside
when the final price is paid:
loving death in sacrifice.”

I'm hoping that some other people will look at the previous translations (all of them) and correct/comment on them. This new one will take a while. If you need something to show your publisher I can do it soon but you shouldn't take it as a final version. I may even send it to your email so that it doesn't clutter up the post here until we can have some agreement on what has been posted before.
