Really Useful / Defnyddiol

Whitivver cam o da kirk weemen whan we wir bairns?
Da fur hats, da ivver-ready hymn-books,
an der kyöderin, a haet birze
o coorse wirsit an jaggy brotches?

Ys gyn i beth ddigwyddodd i hen fenywod fy mhlentyndod?
Eu hetiau ffwr, eu llyfrau emynau parod,
a'u cariad yn wasgfa boeth
o frethyn cras a broitsys pigog?

A translation of Elin ap Hywel's work, Luath Press, 2005
