Ar Lan y Môr


Ar lan y môr mae rhosys cochion
Ar lan y môr mae lilis gwynion,
Ar lan y môr mae ‘nghariad inne
Yn cysgu’r nos a chodi’r bore.

Ar lan y môr mae carreg wastad,
Lle bum yn siarad gair â’m cariad,
O amgylch hon fe dyf y lili
Ac ambell gangen o rosmari.

Ar Lan y Môr

—On the Sea Shore

Love song. A series of Hen Benillion (Old Verses) or Penillion Telyn (Harp Verses) – the verses of the common people. On the sea shore are red roses, on the sea shore are white lillies, on the sea shore is my sweetheart, sleeping at night and getting up in the morning. The melody and first two verses were noted from a Welshman living in London.

Ar lan y môr mae rhosys cochion
Ar lan y môr mae lilis gwynion,
Ar lan y môr mae ‘nghariad inne
Yn cysgu’r nos a chodi’r bore.

Ar lan y môr mae carreg wastad,
Lle bum yn siarad gair â’m cariad,
O amgylch hon fe dyf y lili
Ac ambell gangen o rosmari.

Ar lan y môr mae cerrig gleision,
Ar lan y môr mae blodau’r meibion,
Ar lan y môr mae pob rhinweddau,
Ar lan y môr mae `nghariad innau.

Tros y môr y mae fy nghalon,
Tros y môr y mae f’ochneidion,
Tros y môr y mae f’anwylyd
Sy’n fy meddwl i bob munud.

 

Llawn yw’r môr o swnd a chregyn,
Llawn yw’r wy o wyn a melyn,
Llawn yw’r coed o ddail a blodau,
Llawn o gariad merch wyf innau

Beside the sea there are red roses
Beside the sea there are white lilies
Beside the sea is my own sweetheart
Who sleeps at night and rises in the morning.

Beside the sea there is a flat stone
Where I would speak a word with my love,
Around this the white lily grows
And a few sprigs of rosemary.

Beside the sea there are blue stones,
Beside the sea there are blodau’r meibion
Beside the sea are all the virtues,
Beside the sea is my beloved

Beyond the sea is my heart,
Beyond the sea is my ochneidion,
Beyond the sea is my dear one
Who is in my mind every minute.

Full is the sea of sand and shells,
Full is the egg is full of white and yellow,
Full are the trees of leaves and flowers,
Full of a girl’s love am I
