I am much indebted to the Rev! M! Lambert, for this animated and faithful version of the Poem by Meirion Goch of Eryri. * Probably, this Morgan was Captain of the Glamorganthire Men, about the year 1294; who gultantly defended his country from the incursions

of the sixons, and who difpofsefsed the Earl of Gfocefter of those lands which had formerly been ticken from Morgan's Forfathers: But afterwards, this brave Warrior was betrayed and made a prisoner, at the instigation of K: Edward the Firft. See, Powels Hifiof Wales r: 306

For Her in Arms opposed,

GWENDOLEN saw him fall,
Contending Warriors strove,

And "O the Maiden cried;
'Twas Beauty fir'd their Hearts

Could Maiden Prayers avail
GWENDOLEN's Love.

Thou hadst not died?
On Morva RHUDDLAN's Plain the Rivals stood, Distracted to the Plain GWENDOLEN flew,

Not all proud LLOEGER's might could CYMRY quell, Fast o'er her Hero's Wounds, her Tears Nie sed.

O then for GRIFFITH's Son,
Ye Maids of CYMRY mourn;
For well the Virgins Tear

Becomes his Urn.
Nor you, ye Youths, forbid your Tears to flow,
For they shall beft redress, who feel for Woe.
Sweet sleeps the lovely Maid wept by the Brave
For, ah! The died for him she could not save!

This plaintive style, fo predominant in Welsh Music, is well adapted to melancholy subjects. Our Music probably received a Pathetic tincture from our distresses under

the oppression of the Saxons . Variation ist
