Song facts

From the liner notes of the 2010 reissue of Postcard:

‘Y Blodyn Gwyn’ is in Mary’s native Welsh (‘The White Flower’) and is another gem. “I love that song,” she says. “It’s a traditional tune that we did at school. I used to sing it with a friend, but I take both parts here.”

Lyrics

Flodyn gwyn o ble y daethost?
Nid yw'n dymor blodau'n awr,
On'ni chlywi'r storm yn rhuo,
on'ni weli'r eira mawr.

On'ni chlywi'r storm yn rhuo,
on'ni weli'r eira mawr
Flodyn gwyn, o ble y daethost
Nid yw'n dymor blodau'n awr.

Flodyn eiddail, aros gwrando,
hyn fydd iti'n llawer gwell,
Rhag dy ddifa gan y rhewynt,
rhêd yn ôl i'th wely gell,

Na fy mraint yw codi'n gynnar,
gan ragflaenu'r blodau mwy,
Codi'n fore, fore'n fuan
er mwyn galw arnynt hwy.

Galwaf nes bo'r blodau'n llamu
Ar bob llaw o'i gwely llwm.
Blin yw gorfod galw galw
ar y rhai fo'n cysgu'n drwm,

Galfaw nes bo'r n llamu
ar bob llaw o'u gwely llwm,
Blin yw gorfod galw, galw,
Ar y rhai fo'n cysgu'n drwm.
