St. David Was Born Here

St. David was born here –

or so the locals say.

I can’t know for sure,

as it wasn’t in my day.

They say his mother birthed him

on a dark and stormy night,

at the cliff’s keen edge,

after taking a bad fright.

He’s now the patron saint of Wales,

famous through the world –

but it doesn’t hurt to think

of how he was hurled

into the start of life –

a beginning with such strife.
