SELF-CONTROL: A Dan Direach of Rialú Féin

Forbearance and Temperance
Should crown the adventurous
Force tward foes. Love tward ladies.
Tward thyself show forbearance.

Commander, command thyself
Let that be our legacy
For the man in the mirror
Is the greatest enemy

Abstain so that you may guard
The honor of chaste women
Restrain self indulgent men
Refrain self, do not offend

Temperance pours from passion-
Gentle, patient, tolerant
It bears, believes, hopes, endures
Love births in us forbearance

Those who strive to be knightly
Must keep this in remembrance
Bridle and saddle power-
Forbearance and Temperance
