AP HEFIN* [HENRY LLOYD] May 1938

A grave stanza to Dewi Cynon.

To his district he stands an authority – on its history
A famous choir conductor;
The house of god where he was continually present
Gently shelters his deep sleep.

*Henry Lloyd (Ap Hefin) is famously known as the author of ‘I bob un sy’n ffyddlon’
