An Autobiography
By Ernest Rhys (1859–1946)
WALES England wed; so I was bred. ’Twas merry London gave me breath.
  I dreamt of love, and fame: I strove. But Ireland taught me love was best:
  And Irish eyes, and London cries, and streams of Wales may tell the rest.
What more than these I ask’d of Life I am content to have from Death.
