Regardless of the fact that folklore tells us ‘curiosity killed the cat’ I am a curious person, and can never resist a new challenge. I saw instructions for writing a Welsh style poem called a GWAWDODYN, and I couldn’t resist. It isn’t all that different actually following a 9-9-10-9 syllable lines with that extra syllable in line 3, but not at the end, but in the middle, a little to either the right or the left. This is my one and only so far, and I liked it so much I wanted to share it with you. Here it is.
Fond memories swirl about my heart
Whispering how long we’ve been apart
Yet ‘if only’ failed to restart sweet grace
Nor allow a glimpse of your dear face.
