    #21 Gwawdodyn hir

    Explore the Craft of Writing Poetry Welsh Verse Features of the Welsh Meters Welsh Codified Divisions Gwawdodyn hir, gwow-dód-in heer (gwawd means poem - hir means long), the 21st codified Welsh Meters, an Awdl, is simply an elongation of the Gwawdodyn. A toddaid or cyhydedd hir couplet preceded by 2 or more cyhydedd naw ban couplets is called long or hir. The elements of the Gwawdodyn hir are: stanzaic, the length of which is established by the number of Cyhydedd Naw Ban couplets (more than one) followed by either a Toddaid couplet or a Cyhydedd Hir couplet. ( most often written in a sixain, with 2 Cyhydedd Naw Ban couplets followed by either a Cyhydedd Hir couplet or a Toddaid.) syllabic, assuming only 2 cyhyded naw ban couplets are used followed by either the Cyhydedd Hir or the Toddaid couplets, L1,L2,L3,L4 and L6 are 9 syllable lines and L5 is a 10 syllable line. Obviously, if more cyhyded naw ban couplets are added L5 and L6 become L7 and L8 etc. when written with a cyhydedd hir couplet the stanza is: rhymed aaaaba, with L5 internal rhyme and L6 cross rhymed L5. when written with a Toddaid L1 thru L4 mono-rhymed. Or if written with more than 2 cyhyded naw ban couplets the additional couplets too would be mono-rhyme L5 composed with an addendum, a gair cyrch following the main rhyme and caesura. The gair cyrch end rhyme is echoed in the first half of L6 to consonate as secondary rhyme, assonance or consonance and end rhyme would be the main rhyme. aaaa a . . b, b a with Cyhydedd Hir x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x x a x x x x b x x x x b x x x x b x x x a x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x x x c x x x x d x x x x d x x x x d x x x c with Toddaid x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x x a x x x x x x x a - x b x x x x b x x x a x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x x x c x x x x x x c - x x d x x x x d x x x c with toddaid Gwann iawn wyf o glwyf er gloyn vorwyn Gwae a vaeth hiraeth brif arvaeth wrwyn Gwyr vghalonn donn defnyd vyghwyn Gwnn ar vyrr y tyrr kyn bo erwyn Am na ddawy law y lwyn - a bwyllaf A garaf attaf atteb addwyn.
