a short poem about wales and it`s great past of myths and legends, a place for all to visit.

Land of my Fathers

Wales, a country with a past,
With a language that will last,
Here before the English came,
Was a land they could not tame,
Full of mountains and loads of sea,
It`s the land I love to be.

.

Cymru am Byth

Wales, has history far and deep,
And the Welsh will want to keep,
Famous leaders came from Wales,
Giving us so many tales,
"Cymru am Byth" is the shout,
"Long live Wales" is all it`s about.

.

The Celtic land

Wales, a Celtic land of old,
With many battles that were told,
Myths and legends are so vast,
In the counties historical past,
Visit Wales and have a blast,
With lasting memories that will last.

.

Many castles

As an after thought I would like to mention that Wales has many castles as the English had many problems with the Welsh and this was one means of trying to control them.
For history, legends,myths and lovely county side Wales stands at the top in it`s class !
