GWENLLIAN. (A.D. 1136.) Why tarriest thou so long, my love, While foemen rove with fiery brand ? 0 come, and Celtic valour prove, And free thine own, thy native land. With beetling brows, and vengeful eyes, Thy warriors wait the foaming flood; Then shall their pent-up fury rise, And flashing blades be bathed in blood. 0 come, and from sweet Gwynedd- bring Our kinsmen- born of Northern braves, And blended broods shall backward fling The threatened tide of Norman knaves. Why art thou thus so long, my love? The spoilers now are drawing nigh; And shall Gwenllian faithless prove When duty calls to do or die P 0, can. a. chieftain's wife betray Her absent lord or queenly place? No, never shall my people say A cowa-rd ruled their warrior race! Deheu-barth heard. Gwehllian's call, And onward rushed with sword and shield, Deheu-barth saw Gwenllian fall. Then, mourning, fled the strickeni field. -A. W. WINSTON.
