Walk with me

 We follow the river
Along  the Taff Trail ****
Where will it lead me 
Somewhere beautiful without fail

We pass Llandaff  Cathedral
With Epstein,s statue's within
Cant say that I like it
But thats not a sin

We keep walking for miles
My dog Tilly and me
Soon will be at a castle
Used in films u see

The name of the castle 
Is Castell  Coch
Whose  translation reads
Red Castle of course

It called locally as
The magic castle
Looks so mysterious
As though ready for battle

The rooms arent big at all
Carved small  animals adorn the wall
Been sanctioned for weddings
Though numbers  must be small 

Time to turn back
Homeward bound
Along the manmade track
To the mighty rugby ground

Where voices echo
Hymns are sung
The 6 nations contest*
Has begun.


Come on Wales The reigning grand slam **and   triple crown ***champions





*wales, ireland, scotland, england, italy and france, battle it out annually against each other in Rugby Union. 

**Grand slam is where  you beat all the other teams

***Triple crown is where you have to beat the other 3 uk teams.

**** the river running through Cardiff is the River Taff, that is why we in Wales are called Taffy's 

Taff Trail is 50 miles  of track between Cardiff and  Brecon through countryside and over mountains.  


PLEASE GOOGLE. Castell  Coch  hopefully you will be impressed.

    I Don't know how exactly I missed the tanka, but it was a pleasant surprise. I do remember this one very well. I liked it again reminded me of my journey the night before that was a symbolic as it was real. Nice work again

    You mean actually seen it, the name of the village is Tongwynlais. Did you Google it, can you imagine driving long the A470 from Cardiff and on the mountainside is perched Coch its a lovely site.

    I walk at least five miles a day, and actually almost doubled that the other day, I think my imagery of that could almost match this lol, but definitely not the sceenery. I'm afraid to google it though, I don't think I can swim that far, I'd be fine with the walking lol. Nice scene really, thanks for sharing.

    Thanks Mandy its a nice walk, unless you get run over by a mountain biker or knocked over by a jogger. Nah! seriously its a great trail you can google it and see where it exactly goes. people are inclined to go to Brecon on the mountain bus with their bikes and Taff Trail it home.

    This is a special treat my friend, a poem of where you are from, so very beautiful it is! I wish we had history like that, we get excited if something is 100 years old, not to mention many 100's of years old! You've done beautifully with this incredible poem Seren! I loved reading it this afternoon! What a delightful piece, Great Work!!

    Seren, i have a Welsh ancestor, her surname was Burns....she wouldn't come to the new world (America) with her husband, a member of Britains "black watch" in the 19th. Century...he started a new family eventually in Chicago.....was alcoholic....our roots were penniless....though he twice held seats on Chicago's Board of Trade....hope your team was victorious! jimbo
