WHITE SNOWDON.*
(ERYRI WEN.)
2. Though from their stormy haunts of yore,
Thine eagles long have flown ; As proud a flight the soul shall soar,
Yet from thy mountain throne ! Pierce then the heav'ns, thou hill of streams!
And make the snows thy crest! The sunlight of immortal dreams
Around thee still shall rest.
2. OHh gylch mae cestyll cedyrn mawr,
Yn myn'd yn friwsion man ; Oth gylch mae twrdd tymhestloedd gawr,
Yn rhuo'ti gaeaf gdn. Ond dyma gastell gododd Duw,
Ag eira ar ei ben, I Annibyniaeih Cymrti fyw
Am byth, Eryri Wen.
* The Welsh had always the strongest attachment for Snowdon, which they considered sacred. Qnr frinees had, in addition to their title, that of " Lord of Snow don ."—Pennant.
