Delightful to the Dragon-Lord …
After the final lines of ‘Mydwyf Merweryd’
(‘I am the Pulse …’) from The Book of Taliesin
Delightful to the dragon-lord
are songs from Gwion’s river
Flowing through the halls,
the scent of fair weather,
A horn full of mead
fragrant with honey and clover,
Druids skilled in Awen
– nothing pleases him better!
So the bard instructs the chieftain as to what is valuable and what, therefore, should please him: Gwion’s River : the flow of inspired song, fine weather, fragrant mead and the inspired utterances of his poets.
