A Blessed Birth

The time of darkness touched by Winter’s snow Beneath our feet the frozen Earth awaits The Sun’s rebirth upon the solstice night, In ice and snow she’s warmed by mystic fates, And as before the Winter’s Queen draws near, A cloak of white across her shoulders bare, Her body arched in labours living throes, The … Continue reading A Blessed Birth

Gŵyl Fair y Canhwyllau

Vale Walking

Silently amid the green fields he watches over the Vale a visage over centuries like a guardian from a distant time rising hills beckon the foot falls walking with the peace of nature escaping the fast-paced living of neon lights in the towns and cities the rural idyll of great kings and warriors and time … Continue reading Vale Walking
