Aisling (64.158.64.92 - 64.158.64.92)

I need the following sentance to be in Gaelic for a story:
"I Dark Wizard call upon thee Dragon of the Waterfall, to wash over the Light (Aislings) in death."

This is what I can find myself, but I don't know any grammar rules:
Mi Doilleir Draoi gair thugad Deamhan de a' Eas dü nigh far a' beo Aislings î bås.

Aonghus (159.134.59.49 - 159.134.59.49)

Glaoimse, an Draoi Dorcha, ortsa,
a Dhragún an Easa, ní thar
an Solas agus é marbh

I don't know where you got your version, but it looks like a mixture of Irish and perhaps Scots Gaelic. It may be based on old or Middle Irish.

However, Aisling is a dream, or a vision
Deamhan is a demon
death is bás, but in death doesn't sound right, so I have made it "wash over the Light when he is dead" (Solas being a masculine noun).
