O Father David, Christ our Cod blessed thee. The living waters of godly discipline encompassed thee / and the saving waters of faith flowed through thy teaching/ O Hierarch and Waterman David./ Symbolising the baptism of Wales in thy life,/ thou art worthy of all praise,/ wherefore we keep festival in thy honour,/ glorifying thy eternal memory – Kontakion of St David tone 6

Cadwaladr owned a goat, named Jenny, who ran into in the hills one day as if the very diawi possessed her. He knocked her over a precipice with a stone. At the foot of the rock the goat licked his hand and when the moon rose the goat transformed to a beautiful young woman: ‘Ah, Cadwaladr,’ said she, ‘have I at last found you?’...When the goat - yn awr maiden - arose, and putting her black slipper on the end of a moonbeam, held out her hand to him, he put his hand in hers and went with her. They were soon on the top of the highest mountain in Wales, and surrounded by a vapoury company of goats with shadowy horns. One, which seemed to be the king, had a voice that sounded above the din. This one rushed at Cadwaladr and butting him in the stomach sent him toppling over a crag as he had sent his poor nannygoat. (96)
