Day 5: Hir a Thoddaid

I can’t talk about lyrical poetry, without talking about Welsh poetry. Despite its traditional form, there are multiple rules depending on the poet writing the rules. I combined the rules to come up with these:

Six lines

Lines 1 – 4 and line 6 have 5 syllables.

Line 5 has 10 syllables.

Rhyme scheme:

Lines 1-4 end with a

Line 5: xxxxxxxbxx

Line 6: xxbxa

Given time, what will you grow to learn?
Will your heart remain true or downturn?
Who will task you to stand long and stern?
Shall the heat of knowledge help you earn?
In mighty rhythems songs do deliver
Invariable wrongs you may yet spurn.
