`Yn nediwn seint yn llinghedig, yn nediwn seint yn cor'


Puill, Dôn Defed

"Eo serew geiddad a widder yn firafil," digef Buill, "Eo weddirai e sidder syrs lla frê."

Yst Buill ffagef. Sig ys siddefant ys widdefant yn ffuin westid in orduil glar e sa gafelligaf yn gran cafall gris affreiban syrs ill gran ghemin ke gyrrif passad lla frê, e h-alch yn ke widdef ill cafall afews diged ys sumodaf a h-yn llud rheolar llent sig ys pos coblanfent cu lla frê. "Llo h-ôn," digef Buill, 'coenoscenh-ys h-alch yn lla farchages ci?' "Rhen, ddn," ys rhesponefan. "Affos llaesath alch yn gweddir esser sabad ke sa sia." Yn of suryef, mai h-a'll temp ys athenef ill gran ghemin sa ser gweddid passad.

"I would be glad to see a wonder," said Puill, "I will go and sit on the hill."

This Puill did. As they sat they saw a woman dressed in bright gold brocade and she rode a great gray horse approaching on the highway taht ran past the hill, and everyone that saw the horse would have said it moved at a slow steady speed as it drew level with the hill. "Men," said Puill, "does anyone know that horsewoman?" "No, lord," they answered. "Then let some one go to find out who she is. A man rose, but by the time he reached the highway she was gone past. He followed on foot as best as he could, but the greater his speed the further away she fled, and when he saw that his pursuit was in vain he returned and told Puill. "Lord, it is pointless for anyone to follow her on foot." "All right," said Puill, "Go to the court and take the fastest horse and go after her." The man took the horse and started, but the more he ursged his horse the further ahead she fled, all the time going the same speed as before.
