    #10. Cywydd deuair hirion

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Welsh Verse Features of the Welsh Meters Welsh Codified Divisions Cywydd deuair hirion ców-idd dyé-ire héer-yon (long-lined couplet), the 10th codified ancient Welsh Meter, a Cywydd, alternates rhyme between rising and falling end syllables. The elements of the Cywydd deuair hirion are: stanzaic, written in any number of couplets. made up of 7 syllable lines, rhymed, the rhyming syllables traditionally alternate between stressed and unstressed. ("flow" and "follow" might end two consecutive lines, the stressed syllable of flow rhymes with the unstressed syllable of follow). This is contrary to English wherein rhyme normally comes from the stressed syllable. x x x x x x A (the capital A represents a stressed rhyme.) x x x x x X a (the capital X represents the stressed syllable, the lower case a represents the unstressed rhyme.) Saith gywydd I Forfudd fain syth hoywgorff a saith ugain --- Dafydd Gwilym 14th century Storm The wild wind and rain suppress the dancing leaves in darkness. ---Judi Van Gorder Artist Eyes by Stephen Arndt Groups of stars, bare skeletons, We name as constellations And flesh them out to full shapes To fill our nightly skyscapes. Children watching clouds divine Animal shapes in outline; Hikers eye from heights they've won Forms in a rock formation; In leaf shadows we discern The makings of a pattern. he groups we perceive as things Depend upon the groupings. We try to connect each dot, Spot figures in an inkblot, And though we may not concur Or see things in like manner, Still, it seems that we are bent On finding form in content From children to scientists We all have eyes of artists.
