Kelyonen (Fly)

I don’t know why

fly, in Cornish,

became something bigger;

things like this

are hard to figure,

even though ‘kelyonen’

is a great name,

it seems too grand

for a tiny little one,

it’s like calling an ant

a ‘jeberenteringtun’

(which it isn’t – it’s ‘moryonen’)

‘tykki Duw’ on the other hand,

is Cornish for butterfly,

and that makes me happy.

  1. Isn’t it because flies are never alone, they come in a single scout, then you have multifly multiplied by the bazillion.
