Elin Ap Hywel

Still Life

A purple crocus
its stamen creme-egg yellow;
northern light
a shiver glaze
on the white enamel mug.

You're my Dutch painting:
the place the light gets in,
making everything strange
seem ordinary.

BYWYD LLONYDD

BYWYD LLONYDD

Saffrwm porffor
a’i dafod mor felyn âchanol ŵy Pasg;
goleuni’r gogledd
yn ias o iâ
ar y mwg enamel gwynd.

Ti yw fy llun o Holand:
yr agen fach sy’n gollwng goleuni,
gan droi pob dim
yn gyffredin o ddiarth.
