I'm writing a suite for Uilleann pipes and harp.  it consists of 10 short pieces of music, each of which needs a title and storyline.  The titles are titles of poems i've written in English.  I'd be much obliged if you would look over what i've already translated to make sure its right and make translation suggestions for the storylines i haven't been able to do yet.

Go raibh míle maith agat,
do chara,
Antaine
