Newspaper Cutting: "Light verse is no light matter sir"

Scope and Content

NEWSPAPER CUTTING: "Light verse is no light matter sir". The Rev. Huw Llewelyn Williams, editor of the Anglesey Eisteddfod publications told members of the Island's Gorsedd of the Bards at their annual Arwest that humorous Welsh poetry, much of which had been rescued from stable lofts and taverns, had to be treated seriously. He felt that Rev. Gerallt Davies of Bangor who won the crown trophy and the prizxe money given by the "Daiy Post" in the set constest for a collection of light verse had not taken a sufficiently wide viewof the subject. His comments were sparked by the Rev. J. D. Jones who said "The man in the street can write light verse....." Mr. Handel Morgan however, saying the crown bard was not to be blamed commended the pioneers.
