Oh how lovely. This is the kind of poetry I cherish, and you have written it with soft mandolins in the air. I will visit you and this in my favorites. Keep your lights on forever!

I would love to know how to say the word Twmbarlwm. Wishful and wistful - I enjoyed this.

This is really lovely and although I dont understand a word of Welsh; Even the street names confused me in Wales:)I really enjoyed this poem which put me in mind of the beauty of the Welsh Countryside.

A soft spot I have for the well-written epitaph. This one is made all the better since I have a good friend from Wales, and have heard of this place, but also the way you wrote this, in a form which is perfect for the subject! Brilliant Dave!

Congrats David! Re-reading Dylan's "Under Milkwood" I was struck by this: "As soon as I saw anything I saw Twyn Barlwm, that mystic tumulus, the memorial of peoples that dwelt in that region before the Celts left the Land of Summer." I understand now that Dylan barrowed the line from, Arthur Machen's "Things Far Off". To restate: your poem is wonderful, magical and full of mystery, longing and more. I certainly have been enjoying it. Thanks.
