The next few days Challenge is the Tawddgyrch Cadwynog. This form consists of stanzas of usually four, lines, of four syllables: A. B. B. A.
Like the Rhupunt, it is common to join the lines together and end up with the two stanzas making a couplet.
In subsequent stanzas the rhyme may change, but not the pattern, C. D.D. C. and so on.
He sees the world, his windows clear,
His words so dear - Poet unfurled.
Not cold but pearled, the sky not drear,
It's not to fear, it's smoky twirled.
No clouds to mar his view of this
Nature in bliss - that blazing star.
And seeing far his eyes won't miss,
His voice will kiss, what none can bar.
Do you know how!
Unfrown the brow
Can you relate?
No need to wait
Get on it now
Time does allow
It's not too late
If you insist
On sitting there
Stuck in that chair
You will be missed
Why still persist
I do declare
With much despair
You've heard of Liszt?
Time passes by
Just take it slow
and don't be shy..
Now say good-bye
And off you go.
Secret of Wild Rose
This wilderness, winter creates, its naked state, bereft of dress.
Is it a mess, this bland estate, where we await, seasons progress.
Or is merely a time of rest to feel depressed live austerely.
Knowing surely, what is the best, when flora's dressed, arrives yearly.

There was a time
When all was still
Upon the hill
But for the chimes
That seemed to rhyme
At their own will
Their sound did fill
A silent climb
