FORTH TO THE BATTLE.*
2. Full on the Saxon give your horses head ! Raise, raise the Dragon to his dread! Now he has broken, now he flies in fear ! Now let your trumpet terrify his ear! Shouts of triumph wake and echo on For victory, our victory o'er Moel y Don : God go with thee ! covering thy head ! For sacred is the stroke for a father de;id.
2. Marckog iw canoll dangos dy arfbats, Cyfod gochfaner Dychvyn Sais ! Chwyth yr hen udgorn aferwincCi glust, Byw o'i enciliad bydd yn dyst. gorfolcdd clyw yv cnnyd hott, Blocddio " Buddugoliaeth " tros Foely Don Bcndith arnat, dos yn cnw'r ncf! Cofia am dy dad,fcl bufarw ef!
* ** In consequence of taxes levied by command of King Edward I. toward defraying the charges of his wars in Gascony, formidable insurrections took place throughout Wales, under several provincial leaders, in the year 1294. Morgan, a chieftain of Morganwg, put himself at the head of the oppressed Cymry in that district, d ove out the Earl of Gloucester, and regained possession of the te ritory of which that nobleman's predecessors had formerly deprived hts ancestors. One of the finest of the Welsh martial airs, ' Rhyfelgyrch Capten Morgan,' was probably composed or selected by this prince to animate the march of his followers."William's " History of Wales."
H. 4868.
