Fàilte chridheil ort! :D

It's great that you are writing some poetry, but I think that will be very hard if you don't master basic grammar first. So, the sentence is not correct, but it's also impossible for us to make any suggestions without seeing the while stanza.

Hi loulou

Great that you're learning Gaelic but I would really suggest you park poetry until you're fluent. Poetry is very complex language and writing it at your stage is perhaps not such a good idea. You would essentially be relying on other people to tr*nsl*t* for you or run the rusk of producing material so full of errors nobody will understand it. Just because Gaelic is a small language doesn't mean quality doesn't matter. If you had just started learning French, would your very first aim be to write poetry in French? And how native French speakers would react to that?
