This English language anthology, spanning 25 years, collects the bardic verse of Gruffydd Hirwallt.
Lyrics dry on low racks in the sun -- wool.
Wild bards want to run
But their wool, once washed and spun
Knits the many into one.
Poems that time combs from Cambrian hills -- poems
(Pompous with ancient frills)
Wrap words against ancient chills.
All hail the scale of their skills!
Words that rhyme with time and tradition -- words.
Warden with a mission,
Shepherd beyond attrition,
Condense the Welsh condition.
Words woven on a loom consummate -- cloth.
Clothing for the Welsh fate,
Designs that we designate
The Welshest things we create.
