Ellenor Mererid (eCard Portfolio) Wales - Cantre'r

Wales - Cantre'r

There used yo be an extra part to Wales many years ago, that was in between Wales and Ireland, but it was arround the time when the sea levels where still rising and so the place flooded over, and about 16 major towns drownd beneath the waves, {LINK} it can explain better than I can, but it's also linked with the famous(ish) welsh poet Taliesin who was the only one to escape.
the poem is this:

Clychau Cantre'r Gwaelod

J.J. Williams (1869 - 1954)

O dan y môr â'i donnau
Mae llawer dinas dlôs,
Fu'n gwrando ar y clychau
Yn canu gyda'r nôs;
Trwy ofer esgeulusdod
Y gwyliwr ar y twr,
Aeth clychau Cantre'r Gwaelod
Ô'r golwg dan y dwr.

Pan fyddo'r môr yn berwi,
A'r corwynt ar y don,
A'r wylan wen yn methu
A disgyn ar ei bron;
Pan dyr y don ar dywod,
A tharan yn ei stwr,
Mae clychau Cantre'r Gwaelod
Yn ddistaw dan y dwr.

Ond pan fô'r môr heb awel,
A'r don heb ewyn gwyn,
A'r dydd yn marw yn dawel
Ar ysgwydd bell y bryn,
Mae nodau pêr yn dyfod,
A gwn yn eithaf siwr
Fod clychau Cantre'r Gwaelod
I'w clywed dan y dwr.

O! cenwch, glych fy mebyd,
Ar waelod llaith y lli;
Daw oriau bore bywyd
Yn swn y gân i mi;
Hyd fedd mi gofia'r tywod
Ar lawer nos ddi-stwr,
A chlychau Cantre'r Gwaelod
Yn canu dan y dwr.

Erm . . this fits in with the challenge as myths and ledgens is a big part of Wales!
(I know the person who runs this challenge has quit, but it's to count at the running total of the challenge entries)
I hope you all like it!!
