Taliesin Pen Beirdd
Said to the dragon-lord
Here are the things
That can make your life
Complete: the flow
Of Gwion's River, the scent
Of fragrant mead, the genius
Of your druids and fair weather.
Did he listen, or was the call
Of the dragon field of battle
More than a bard could discourage,
Greater than a druid's counsel?
