from Wild Wales by … THE spearman heard the bugle sound, And cheerly smiled the morn;And many a brach, and many a hound, Attend Llewellyn's horn:And still he blew a louder blast, And gave a louder cheer —'Come, Gelert! Blood! THE spearman heard the bugle sound And cheerly smiled the mornAnd many a brach and many a hound.
—His suppliant, as to earth he fell, No pity could impart;But still his Gelert's dying yell Passed heavy o'er his heart.Aroused by Gelert's dying yell, Some slumberer wakened nigh:What words the parent's joy can tell, To hear his infant cry!Concealed beneath a mangled heap, His hurried search had missed,All glowing from his rosy sleep, His cherub-boy he kissed!Nor scratch had he, nor harm, nor dread — But, the same couch beneath,Lay a great wolf, all torn and dead — Tremendous still in death!Ah!

Beth Gelert, or the Grave of the Greyhound.
1876-79. The flower of all his race!So true, so brave; a lamb at home, A lion in the chase! And here he hung his horn and spear, And there, as evening fell, In fancy's ear he oft would hear Poor Gelert's dying yell.
'Twas only at Llewellyn's board The faithful Gelert fed; He watched, he served, he cheered his lord, And sentineled his bed.

" Come, Gelert, come, wert never last Llewellyn's horn to hear! ''Twas only at Llewellyn's board The faithful Gelert fed;He watched, he served, he cheered his lord, And sentinelled his bed.In sooth, he was a peerless hound, The gift of royal John;But now no Gelert could be found, And all the chase rode on.And now, as over rocks and dells The gallant chidings rise,All Snowdon's craggy chaos yells With many mingled cries.That day Llewellyn little loved The chase of hart or hare:And scant and small the booty proved; For Gelert was not there.Unpleased, Llewellyn homeward hied, When, near the portal-seat,His truant Gelert he espied, Bounding his lord to greet.But, when he gained the castle-door, Aghast the chieftain stood;The hound was smeared with gouts of gore, His lips and fangs ran blood.Llewellyn gazed with wild surprise, Unused such looks to meet:His favourite checked his joyful guise, And crouched, and licked his feet.Onward in haste Llewellyn passed — And on went Gelert too —And still, where'er his eyes were cast, Fresh blood-gouts shocked his view!O'erturned his infant's bed, he found The blood-stained covert rent;And all around, the walls and ground With recent blood besprent.He called his child — no voice replied; He searched — with terror wild;Blood!
