How Do I Love Thee Challenge


1. steel-sheen

Sea-deep eyes, skin swan-feather white
cascading mantle of midnight
To my sight, in steel and shield
the forge still flickered. Draw the blade-
I hear the metal’s serenade
Unafraid, unsheathed, revealed



This is a Cywydd Llosgyrnog (cuh-with lo-seer-nock) for Morwen Steelsheen. It was the word Llosgyrnog that started me thinking about Morwen of Lossarnach. Finding that she had been born in Belfalas gave me the black and white image.

This may also serve as my place holder for one more verse.
