The Featured Poems At National Poetry Day

As part of National Poetry Day’s 25th Anniversary six poems have been released as part of the celebrations.

Working in partnership with Literature Wales, each poem has been produced in a different indigenous language, ranging from Gaelic to Welsh, as well as an English translation.

Each poem also focuses on an aspect of truth, this years theme for the event.

We have produced an audio version of each poem which can be heard here, as well as the poems themselves to read along with.


Aince upon a day – William Soutar


Cornish Words – Donald R. Rawe


The Leaves of Autumn – Robert Corteen Carswell


Who broke the school window? – Gruffudd Owen
