Wales: Snowdon


By From the Welsh

Translated by George Barrow

COLD is the snow on Snowdon’s brow,

It makes the air so chill;

For cold, I trow, there is no snow

Like that of Snowdon’s hill.

A hill most chill is Snowdon’s hill,

And wintry is his brow;

From Snowdon’s hill the breezes chill

Can freeze the very snow.
