MAB DAROGAN: THE PROPHECY OF OWAIN GLYNDWR - THE PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE PRINCE OF WALES - TYWYSOG CYMRU OWAIN IV.
FACES OF FUTURE
…. It was told to many a child that when the great Prince Owain was born that he did start to cry and would not be quiet, until his father had allowed the young babes hand to touch the hilt of his sword. It was also told that when the Prince
Owain was born that in
his father’s stable the horses did go wild and stamp in their stalls until
their fetlocks bled. It was further told that on the night of Prince Owain's birth there were great storms, the flash of
lightening and the crash of thunder and the rivers did, in torrents, flood
their banks. It was also much whispered that in the skies to the East a fiery
comet was seen to streak the heavens - and far away, in the halls of the
English kings at Westminster, four little bells, all of their own accord, did
start to ring, ring, ring and ring - much to the disdain and fear of the
English Courtiers who, one day, would contemptuously refer to Prince Owain as the one who led the “Bare foot Welsh
Doggis”, words, we are sure, they came to regret using in such rash haste.
Thus, such things are the stuff of myth and legend born....
