Report on 'A Welsh Grammar' is my International Poetry Day contribution.
"The use of a recent Welsh-English Dictionary with this handbook is recommended" - S. J. Williams
Seeking the names of the four winds
in the points of the compass I came
to springs and streams on tops of hills
trickling amongst huge rocks and a bright sky.
Below I saw a new village being built
and an old house being pulled down.
A man was selling his land
and another man was catching fish.
Later I learned the names of trees
mountains rivers and streams
where people lived and washed their clothes.
Eating their food I heard the merry cuckoo.
The wood was dressed in leaves and
in gardens girls picked bouquets of lavender
lilies, red roses and stinging nettles.
A wheat-reaping party worked in a field.
