Daffyd’s Sea Lily

Original Piece, Paintings

Dafydd ap Gwilym was a 14th Century Welsh Poet who called the Seagull the Sea Lily in a love poem to one of his many sweethearts. He is described as a “daring and original poet who linked traditional bardic poetry with the (then) current European fashion of courtly love.”* Sadly he died quite young, most probably of the Black Death.
