I have no idea what it refers to, either, but I'll give it a first try:
Muileann cerdcha all fheda,
teach cen urchaill traig mara;
comrad indluith tria muine,
do duine cid dochana.
The cliff (edge?) of the forest (is) the mill of a work-shop (smithy),
the beach of the sea is a house without a door-post;
insecure (?) conversation through the thicket
to a person even though he should chant (?).
All of the words are clearly identifiable, but the sense remains mysterious.
