BRECON LADY POET IN THE STATES. [By T. FREDERICK LEWIS.] As an occasional contributor to an American journal I am in touch with the United States press. In recent issues I have come across several very complimentary references to a writer of charming verse. And she is a Welsh lady too, and a native of Brecon town to boot. Her name is Mrs Gwenllian Herbert Rose and she is the wife of a prominent resident of Buffalo, New York. Her deep love for her native Brecon is very marked and is evidenced in many of the verses she has written on her beloved Wales. I am sure readers of the "County Times" will be glad to read her lines on Breconshire in Wales which appeared in the Druid," a well produced eight- paged newspaper published in Pittsburg, a short time ago. Her picture of Brecon scenery is very beautiful You may boast of countries glorious, Where the skies are ever fair, Where the flowers in sweet profusion Waft their fragrance on the air You may boast of splendid roses, Growing up to six foot tall, But to me the flowers are sweetest That grow near a garden wall. Dewy, wet mignonette, That sweet incense flings Marigold, buds unfold, And the maybell rings Snowy flocks and hollyhocks, Making love you see, Columbine and ivy vine Twining lovingly. 11 1-1 You may boast of rainbow valleys, Where the sun shines all the year, Great and ever fertile wheatlands, That lift the soul from hungerfear You may boast of shining wonders, Cataract and waterfall, But give me the silver water Murmuring near a garden wall. Velvet dusk, the river Usk Softly flowing by, Grey blue mountains, sunkissed fountains, Lift their heads on high Briar-rose, her glory throws O'er the jewelled vales, 0 you hold my soul enchanted, Breconshire in Wales. So it is evident that Brecon has a warm corner in the heart of this Welsh American lady writer, or Gwen Eryrij to give her proper pen-name. One American writer, I notice, des- cribes Gwen Eryri's poem "When Roosevelt fell asleep" as the "finest tribute he had yet seen to this illustrious man." Here is one verse Fearless, he preached the golden rule and lived it, too His thoughts were fragrant blossoms wet with the dew Of human kinduess, an apostle of crystal truth That he had made his own from earliest youth Upon that sunlit shore when life's glad morning breaks > May all the beauties that he lived on earth greet him when he awakes. A couple of weeks ago the Welsh IL American people instituted the first American Gorsedd. The ancient cere- mony was a l-eplica of the annual Gorsedd which we in Wales are so familiar with.

The Druid" issued a special illustrated number to mark the occasion and to Mrs Gwenllian Herbert Rose was given the honour of contributing a poem on the Gorsedd. Here is one verse which can be sung to that well-known Christmas hymfi Hark. the Herald Angels sing;" THE (-OHSH)))) (iOSI'Kl, Peace and truth, 0 glorious message, Of the Gorsedd. spread it far Let us follow where it leads us, As the wise men did the star Come and join our mystic circle, Hear our mighty anthems ring, You will hear no. grander music.
