Taliesin foi um poeta britano da Britânia pós-romana cuja obra talvez sobreviveu em manuscrito em galês médio, o Livro de Taliesin. Era um renomeado bardo que se acredita ter cantado na corte de ao menos três reis britanos. Na mitologia e poesia galesa medieval, é referido como Taliesin Ben Beirdd pois excedia a seus coetâneos na arte poética. Dentre suas presumidas obras há uma awdl ou ode que contem um resumo da história do mundo na qual há uma estrofe que trata do destino dos britanos. A maioria dos poemas do Livro de Taliesin é relativamente recente , mas ao menos doze deles são, de acordo com Ifor Williams, contemporâneos ao bardo.

Whence come night and day?“

in the shape of a satirizing fox,
in the shape of a sure swift,
in the shape of a squirrel vainly hiding.“

„Those that placed me on the cross
I knew when young.“

—  Taliesin
Context: Those that placed me on the cross I knew when young. That drove me on the tree, My head hung down. Stretched were my two feet, So sad their destiny. Stretched with extreme pain The bones of my feet. Stretched were my two arms, Their burden will not be. Stretched were my two shoulders, So diligently it was done. Stretched were the nails, Within my heart. Stretched was the spiking, Between my two eyes. Thick are the holes Of the crown of thorns in my head. The lance was struck And my side was pierced. It will be struck to you also, As your right hand (struck me). To you there will be no forgiveness, For piercing me with spears. And the Ruler we knew not When thou wert hung.

„The dawn smiles, repelling gloom“

—  Taliesin
Context: The dawn smiles, repelling gloom, At the dawn with violence, At every meet season, At the meet season of his turnings, At the four stages of his course, I will extol him that judges violence, Of the strong din, deep his wrath. I am not a man, cowardly, gray, A scum near the wattle.

I am a guide: I am expert in contests.“

If a brother among brothers, Didactic Bards with swelling breasts will arise Who will meet around mead-vessels, And sing wrong poetry And seek rewards that will not be, Without law, without regulation, without gifts. And afterwards will become angry.

The rapid vehement fire.“

„I have been a course, I have been an eagle.
I have been a coracle in the seas:
I have been compliant in the banquet.
I have been a drop in a shower;
I have been a sword in the grasp of the hand
I have been a shield in battle.
I have been a string in a harp,
Disguised for nine years,
in water, in foam.“

I have been sponge in the fire, I have been wood in the covert

„The love-diffusing [Lord] will separate us.“

—  Taliesin
Context: The love-diffusing [Lord] will separate us. The land of worldly weather, A wind will melt the trees: There will pass away every tranquillity When the mountains are burnt. There will be again inhabitants With horns before kings; The mighty One will send them, Sea, and land, and lake. There will be again a trembling terror, And a moving of the earth, And above every field, And ashes the rocks will be; With violent exertion, concealment, And burning of lake.

And the hymns of angels,
Will raise from the graves,
They will entreat from the beginning.“
