“Thit an long i dtreo an phláinéid dheirg, í ag luasghéarú i gcónaí. Bhí na cúrsóirí á leanúint agus, mar a shíl A-Hiom, bhí siad ag teacht suas leo, beagán ar bheagán. Líon Na Hasta an radharc ar fad a bhí rompu agus chonaic Sál na sraitheanna de scamaill agus stoirmeacha ina nguairneáin, iad oráiste agus bán, ag casadh leo in atmaisféar meirgeach an phláinéid.”
