Sample Scottish Gaelic text in the Tengwar alphabet

Tranlsation

O language that's close to my heart,
My food, my spice, my breath, and my strength,
you are as old as the abundant heather on the hills.
The hills, slopes, and peaks were named by you when they were young.
Gael, you're needing and you're wanting,
like a stringless harp or a vein without blood.

(Verse one of Cànan nan Gàidheal - 'Language of the Gael')
