Marwolaeth Y Duw Aur: A Lament for the Lost Marshes

Great Sorrow

As the body on the bier

Goes down

 

The river flows

Annwn grows

More distant

 

Dry rushes

Where marshy ground once stood

In peace

 

The river flows

Annwn grows

More distant

 

Red flags

Waving eagle standards high

In war

 

The river flows

Annwn grows

More distant

 

Earthen walls

Raised up to stop the waters

He falls

 

The river flows

Annwn grows

More distant

 

His color

Gold is flowing, draining life

It lands

 

The river flows

Annwn grows

More distant

 

Wetlands dried

No longer resting places

He dies

 

The river flows

Annwn grows

More distant
