Song for Dolan's Processional

Feather gold through bright sky soars
Talon sharp strikes at the heart.
Prowess shown in far-flung wars
Yeoman skill is proven Art.

See the archers yew-bow stringing
See the ranks of foemen dying
Hear the bards lead people singing,
See the Falcon golden flying.

Touch the heart with song or tale,
By true voice make rafters ring.
With ancient deeds the folks regale.
The tribe will now with one voice sing.

See the archers yew-bow stringing
See the ranks of foemen dying
Hear the bards lead people singing,
See the Falcon golden flying.

Who has such talent well combined?
Welshmanís bow and bardic skill,
For this the Falcon Crown did find
Peer heís been and ever will.

See the archers yew-bow stringing
See the ranks of foemen dying
Hear the bards lead people singing,
See the Falcon golden flying.

Well blessíd are we this day to see,
And come we all from far and near,
Dolan Laurel henceforth to be
Archer bard of Calontir.

See the archers yew-bow stringing
See the ranks of foemen dying
Hear the bards lead people singing,
See the Falcon golden flying.
