As it’s St. Patrick’s Day (and he’s on record as swearing in Welsh), I thought I’d send you all do-it-yourself instructions for writing englynion in Cornish. Click on the word Bardhas, and up will come a highly tasteful pdf.
These tiny haiku-like poems have been popular with the P-Celtic branch for centuries. Some people have even perpetrated the odd one in English – wisely, usually anonymously:
An englyn to write in Engish – is hard,
They say: oh how foolish!
One now and then when I wish
I amply can accomplish.
