Most of these poems are written in medieval fixed forms, or approximations of medieval forms – one of my on-going quests being a search for ways of reproducing the sound and feel of medieval Welsh poetry in modern English. And yet, because the bardic art I practice is a performance art, these are in a larger sense not my poems at all, but merely pale imitations – poems preserved on paper.

On the other hand, you could just plunge in now and see how you like Gwernin's world...

This book re-imagines the psalms as songs of love and devotion between human beings, rather than directed in hope toward a distant, silent God.
