Cywydd llosgyrnog

Post by Ven » Fri Nov 05, 2004 11:29 am

Berlie participated in a "what poetic form are you" quiz in the General Discussions Forum and got this as her answer ;
A cywydd llosgyrnog; I'm one.
"A what?" Well, quite. There'd be no fun
In being understood; I
Thrive upon obliquity.
Don't comprehend or follow me,
For mystery's my ally.
Being Welsh myself but not recognizing the title of the form I, not surprisingly, felt the need to research a little and I managed to find the following ;

CYWYDD LLOSGYRNOG: A type of Welsh verse consisting of a sestet stanza in which the syllable count is eight, eight, seven, eight, eight, and seven respectively. The first two lines rhyme and cross-rhyme with the middle syllable of the sixth line and the third and sixth lines rhyme with each other. Rime coueé or tail-rhyme has a similar scheme.

Hopefully I'll be able to find the time to give it a go
