Brechva’s Harp Song
Ernest Rhys (b. 1860)
LITTLE harp, at thy cry,
  He shall come in good time;
And thy sword-song on high,
  High shall chime.
Little harp, in his brain        5
  Is the fire; in his hand
Are the sword and the rein
  Of command.
Little harp, like the wind
  Is his strength; like thy song        10
Are his words, to unbind
  Wales ere long!
Little harp, if his name
  Be unknown, ye shall hear
How the stars tell his fame        15
  Far and near.
Little harp, if unknown
  He come, ye shall sing
When Eryri shall throne
  Him All King!        20
