WRITTEN ON A BRIDGE, by                 Poet Analysis     Poet's Biography
First Line: When soft september brings again
Last Line: And find thee changeless, pont-y-wern.
Variant Title(s): Pont-y-wern
Subject(s): Bridges; September; Wales; Welshmen; Welshwomen

WHEN soft September brings again
To yonder gorse its golden glow,
And Snowdon sends its autumn rain
To bid thy current livelier flow;
Amid that ashen foliage light
When scarlet beads are glistering bright,
While alder boughs unchanged are seen
In summer livery of green;
When clouds before the cooler breeze
Are flying, white and large; with these
Returning, so may I return,
And find thee changeless, Pont-y-wern.
