206                              THE MILLER'S DAUGHTER,
(MERCH Y MELINYDD.)
This year I'll neither marry,
Nor yet coquetting go, 'Tis wiser far to tarry,
Lest men should work you woe, For first they praise your beauty
And then your faith abuse, So 'tis a maiden's duty
Most carefully to choose.
2. 'Phrioda'i ddim eleni,
ChwedleuaH ddim a neb ; Twyllodrus iawn yw meibion,
A fed rant ddweyd yn deg, Po deced bo nhwy'n gwedyd,
0, gwaetkaH gyd y daw ; Llawenyddpob merch ifangc,
y ■ dewis at ei Uaw.
3. If pretty girls in plenty
Turn sad at Owen's frown, For sure I've four-and-twenty
Admirers in the town. And some are for my money,
And more are for myself; I smile and keep love's honey
Safe locked upon the shelf.
3. Os oes rhyw dair next bedair
Yn hoff 0 hono ef; Mae gennyf innau bedwar
Ar bymtheg yn y drej : Ond nhw sy'n giveyd fel yma,
A nhw sy'11 gweyd fel hyn ; 'Dwyffi ond gwenu arnynt,
.1 dal fy serch yn dyn.
* Pronoutu ■ I " G tientlet an."
He says I blushed so brightly,
It proved his gossip's tale, But I made answer rightly—
" A guilty cheek turns pale." And he who fairly sought her,
And fairly wooed and won, Would find the miller's daughter
As steadfast as the sun.
.. Fe wed fy mod yn euog,
Oherwydd gwrid fy mock ; Os gxvrida ef yn welw,
Mi wrida, innau'n goch. A gwedaf yn ei wynebt
Ag wyneb dewrpob dyn ; Llawenydd "Merch Melinydd,"
Yw cant dim ond un.
H. 4868.
