October 09: Poem in Cornish by Robin Chater

Ow Mos Tre

A woles dhe'n vre
Yma'n avon ow ponya;
Howl gorthewer,
Splan lemmyn
Ogas dhe haf.

Ottoma keresyk dhym
Ow mos tre dhe wely yeyn.
Yma hy ryp an eglos
Yma hy y'n lowarth
Ow coslowes orth an gwyth.

Lowen of vy
Tek yu hy
An jeth bew
Ow tryga
Rak deu –
Gwyr ha da.


Going Home

At the bottom of the hill
The river is running
The evening sun
Bright now
Near to Summer.

Here is my darling
Going home to a cold bed.
She is beside the church,
She is in the garden
Listening to the trees.

Happy am I,
Beautiful is she,
The day alive
Living
For two –
True and good.
