Arrangement Christian Souchon (c) 2008

"Red glows the forge in Striguil's bounds,
And hammers din and anvil sounds,
And armourers, with iron toil,
Bard many a steed for battle's broil.
Foul fall the hand which bends the steel
Around the coursers' thundering heel,
That e'er shall dint a sable wound
On fair Glamorgan's velvet ground!"
"Or la braise rougit les forges de Striguil
Et les armuriers dans des rets de métal
Pour le sanglant combat enserrent les chevaux;
Entendez sur l'enclume sonner les marteaux!
Malheur à la main qui mal applique l'acier
Aux talons fracassants de nos nobles coursiers,
Si jamais un sabre l'entaille, en le mordant
Sur les prés de velours de ce beau Glamorgan!"
