She cast her snowy hair
into Conan’s boat,
She cast a twisted smile
on the sacred tree.;

‘Sinend, daughter of Lodan Luchargian, son of Ler, out of Tir Tairngire Land of Promise to Connla’s Well which is under sea, to behold it. That is a well at which are the hazels & inspirations of wisdom, that is, the hazels of the science of poetry, and in the same hour their fruit, and their blossom and their foliage break forth, & these fall on the well in the same shower, which raises on the water a royal surge of purple. Then the salmon chew the fruit, & the juice of the nuts is apparent on their purple bellies. And seven streams of wisdom spring forth & turn there again.’

Welcome Conall, heart of stone,

In Dinorwig in the 1830s when the people were evicted and starved an old wornan named Sian William of the Garned took refuge in the Marchlyn Mawr: Marchlyn caves.

The Marchlyn Mawr is surrounded by rocks terrible to look at, and tradition relates how one of the sons of the farmer of Rhiwen, once on a time, when helping a sheep that had fallen among the rocks to get away, discovered a tremendous cave there; he entered, and saw that it was full of treasures and arms of great value; but, as it was beginning to grow dark, and as clambering back was a difficult matter even in the light of day, he went home that evening, and next morning with the grey dawn he set out again for the cave, when he found it without much trouble. He entered, and began to look about him at the treasures that were there. In the centre of the cave stood a huge table of pure gold, and on the table lay a crown of gold and pearls. He understood at once that they were the crown and treasures of Arthur. He approached the table, and as he stretched forth his hand to take hold of the crown he was frightened by an awful noise, the noise, as it were, of a thousand thunders bursting over his head, and the whole place became as dark as Tartarus. He tried to grope and feel his way out as fast as he could. When he had succeeded in reaching to the middle of the rocks, he cast his eye on the lake, which had been stirred all through, while its white-crested waves dashed through the jagged teeth of the rocks up to the spot on which he stood. But as he continued looking at the middle of the lake he beheld a coracle containing three women, the fairest that the eye of man ever fell on. They were being quickly rowed to the mouth of the cave; but the dread aspect of him who rowed was enough to send thrills of horror through the strongest of men. The youth was able somehow to escape home, but no health remained in his constitution after that, and even the mere mention of the Marchlyn in his hearing used to be enough to make him insane. – Lloyd Jones
