Title: The Woodpigeon Speaking to the Farmers


In the uplands of Denbighshire the poor wood pigeon has a hard time of it in the winter, and, to make provision for the cold winter days, he, when he sees the farmer sowing spring seeds, says:| Dyn du, dyn da, Hau pys, hau ffa, Hau ffacbys i ni, Fwyta.| which rendered into English is:| Black man, good man, Sow peas, sow beans, Sow vetches for us, To eat.
