Triban Morgannwg (9)

TRIBAN MORGANNWG

Glandwr a'r cylch yw'r gwaetha
Ar darth a mwg 'mhob simla,
Aroglau mawr a chymyl du -
Mae'n debyg i Gehenna.

Hen Bennill (9)

HEN BENNILL

Mwyn, a mwyn, a mwyn yw merch,
A mwyn iawn lle rhoddo'i serch;
Lle rho merch ei serch yn gynta',
Dyna gariad byth nid oera.

Rampage & Revel (9)

HARRI WEBB
Rampage & Revel
The Lovespoon

In days gone by, a lad too shy
To tell his love too soon
Would by this sign say, Please be mine:
He'd give his girl a spoon.

With tender heart he'd carve each part,
The handle, stem and bowl.
With a deft knife he'd claim a wife
And win her loving soul.

Each symbol clear would tell his dear
The hopes his mind delighted;
The twisted stem meant both of them
Would always be united.

The Wheel vowed work, he wouldn't shirk
To build a cosy nest,
Of luck the crescent Horseshoe spoke,
The Key said home is best.

The Soul, the Heart declared the part
That gladly he'd forgo,
Each little Ball would tell her all
Their children in a row.

The merry Bell of marriage spoke,
He'd lead her to the altar,
The Shield, protection stout as oak,
His faith would never falter.

And as they walked, and as they talked
Beneath the country moon
Her blush would glow, for well she'd know
The message of the spoon.

Quatre Poires (9)

ANJELA DUVAL
Quatre Poires
La veille de la Saint-Jean (Noz derc'hent Gouel Yann)

La nuit la plus courte. La nuit du jour le plus long.
Dix heures! La nuit ne vient pas.
Toute chose visible dans les lointains.
Le ciel moitié couleur de deuil:
Un bleu pourpre clairsemé, éteint, ineffable,
Couleur de secret. Couleur de nostalgie
Couleur de souvenir.

Claire la lune. Tres blanche
- Les étoiles restent invisibles. -
La nuit prend un air rêveur
Nostalgie - lugubre assurément -
Des habitudes tombées dans le passé.
Clarté et bonheur d'autrefois
Des soirées de veille de la saint-Jean.
Dans les campagnes bretonnes, les petits bourgs.
Des flammes d'un rouge vif s'élevaient de chaque village.
L'odeur de la fumée dans l'air nocturne.
Les cris perçants des enfants
Juchés sur les talus
Sur les hauteurs
Ils comptent les feux de joie
Tout autour.

Coutumes disparues.
Auxquelles les jeunes d'aujourd'hui
Renocent trop aisément.
- Ou est-tu, jeunesse remuante?
- A l'école, à te detruire (en attendant l'exil)
Dans une culture contraire à l'esprit de ton peuple.

Ce soir seulement au-dessus de la vallée
Un feu tranquille. Un feu froid:
La lune claire,
Dans sa Plénitude
Seule
Etincelant sur la lande.
Veille de la saint-Jean...

I'm into a routine now so there's not a lot to write about, although I should add that friends from home called in to see me the other day; Gareth Westacott, Mike Davies, and John Page bringing me books on the history & heritage of Cymru/Wales. The book on Dewi Sant is particularly apt as on the second page of the acknowledgements is a photo of his statue in the church of Dirinon, co-incidentally a village I go through every day on my way to my treatment in Brest, it gets its name from his mother Non. On pages 110 & 111 there are photos of Non's grave-chapel, a wooden carving of her, her tomb and her holy well. Considering that the Breton chapels were a big part of my life for the 3 years I was out of work I missed this.  If you are reading this Gareth I won't be here friday as I have an extra appointment in Brest at 9:30 am to go with my regular treatment that same afternoon.

Krennlavar (8)

KRENNLAVAR:
Ki skaotet en deus aon rak dour klouar
Ki skaotet a dec'h rak dour bervet
Nend eus ket a c'houari get ur c'hozh ki
An hini a ya da fustañ ar chas a goll e blas
An hini ' dec'h ' Goll e lec'h

Diarebion (8)

DIAREBION:
Nid rhodd,rhodd, oni bydd o fodd
Myn'd i gysgu 'run pryd â'r fuwch, a chodi gyda'r hedydd
Ni wyr, ni ddysg; ni ddysg, ni wrendy
Nerth eryr yn ei ylfin
Nerth unicorn yn ei gorn
Nerth sarph yn ei cholyn
Nerth hwrdd yn ei ben
Nerth arth yn ei phalfau
Nerth ci yn ei ddant
Nerth tarw yn ei ddwyfron
Nerth ysguthan yn ei hadenydd
Nerth gwraig yn ei thafod - whoops!

Two appointments this afternoon, 3:45pm & 4pm, both at the same hospital, a taxi ride away from each other. the first was my regular radio-wave treatment, my second was an MRI scan with headphones and music to cut out the noise; luckily I'm not claustrophobic as I was enclosed in a tube for half an hour.
