The Icelandic Gull – NonHaiku

Golden, and yet white;

the Icelandic Gull

shines so bright.

A Little bit of Kernewek is what I’ve got.

A Little bit of Cornish is what I’ve got.

A’gas dynnergh Kernow

‘Welcome to Cornwall!’

I say it a lot,

a little bit of Cornish, is what I’ve got.

‘Eus keus?’

‘Roev sos roev!’

phrases that I’ve learnt from song;

‘Onan hag oll!’ Let’s get along.

‘Nadelik Lowan!’

at ‘that’ time of the year

my pronunciations a little bad, I fear.

“Dydh da; duw genes!

as The Beatles sang,

of this ancient language, I shall get the hang.

A’gas dynnergh Kernow

‘Welcome to Cornwall!’

I say it a lot,

a little bit of Cornish, is what I’ve got.
