#176 TAWDDGYRCH CADWYNOG 5-31-98
Bliss in my heart by the river the brown beaver eyed the green lawn
Bliss was a dart I still quiver the leaves shiver the bird greets dawn
Bliss was a fawn caught by the wind as fish are finned in the water
Bliss is now gone humans have sinned their hearts are pinned to great slaughter
