Congratulations! It's a beautiful poem, and an impressive undertaking for someone who (from what I've gathered from our previous conversations) isn't a native Welsh speaker! Yay!

Diolch yn fawr ;-) I had fun doing it, too. It helped that I have Yr Odliadur - a Welsh rhymning dictionary - and a lot of other references, also that I've written a lot of structured poetry in English including some that is syllabic. The hardest part was the literary verbs, since my literary Welsh is still very much a work in progress!

I would have liked to try for full cynghanedd, but that would have taken more than two months (there was a required minimum of 350 words for the piece, which could have been either prose or poetry). Maybe next time...
