Cerdd y Gog Lwydlas

Caru yn y Coed (Loving in the Woods) - Cerdd y Gog Lwydlas (The Blue Grey Cuckoo's Song) - Lliw'r Lili Ymysg y Drain (The Colour of the Lily Amongst the Thorns)


As I was walking, and my little heart sad, On Monday morning, at the break of day I heard the cuckoo, strangely sweet, On the side of the hill by the bush. When I heard her echo singing so sweetly On the side of the high hill on the bush’s twigs I asked her a question, seriously and honestly Where were you for so long from your country? I was somewhere, I’m not sure where Lying as if dead, confined to my place, Sheltering and sleeping in temporary shelters And now I have permission to sing in your land. My time to sing is April and May And half of June, as you all know, I will go away, my chicks are small And before Ifan’s festival my song will cease.
