Martydom of St. Rhianwen ferch Bran ap Gruffydd -


Lord won't you buy me a belaying pin
When OAFs are assembled let chaos begin
I'll beat up that a--hole who's stolen my gin.
Lord, won't you buy me a belaying pin.
- Andrixos?

Riddle One from the Martyrdom

I am taller than any man but my arms touch the earth
My kin hosted the bee-wolf and I ward bee-sisters
Many hands have dressed me drawn by love to adorn me
I have seen kings give gold and queens give cups
Coins uncounted have I held yet I can claim no wealth
Long roads have I traveled lit only moonlight
I have seen blood and pain and bliss and love
I am crossed by few for I am warded by falcons
I am the soul of a kingdom so say what I am called
-Rhodri ?

Riddle Two from the Martyrdom

A grinning mind-house . gave birth to me
Pain was the coin that paid that price
Blows shrewdly given shared amongst all
I have been the wolf wild in the woodland
I have been the acorn striking from the oak
I have been the falcon flying above the folk
I have towered above all a rock many times triumphant
I have wielded swords scythe-like sweeping
I have reached the sky climbing with verdant skill
I have lost my name but none fail to know me
I have held tridents with trampling cavalry
I have been the trillium tracking doomed prey
These things and more throughout my time
I have become. How, then, am I called?
-Rhodri ?
