„Even God had a Welsh name:
He spoke to him in the old language“

"A Welsh Testament"
Tares (1961)
Contexto: Even God had a Welsh name:
He spoke to him in the old language;
He was to have a peculiar care
For the Welsh people. History showed us
He was too big to be nailed to the wall
Of a stone chapel, yet still we crammed him
Between the boards of a black book.
