Sources differ as to whether Dr. Parry composed the music for an existing poem by Richard Davies ("Mynyddog Mwynfawr"; 1833–1877) (the common belief) or whether Davies wrote the words to Parry's melody following its use with an English lyric by Thomas Walter Price (Cuhelyn; 1829 - 1869)(*1), journalist and poet, called "Arabella". Myfanwy is a popular Welsh song, composed by Joseph Parry and first published in 1875. Forget now all the words of promise You made to one who loved you well, Give me your hand, my sweet Myfanwy, But one last time, to say "farewell". / Pa le mae'r wên oedd ar dy wefus / Fu'n cynnau ' Richard Davies' lyric may have been influenced by the 14th Century love story of Myfanwy Fyc… Maybe there was a real Myfanwy in Parry's life, a girl by the name of Myfanwy Llwyellyn. / A'th ruddiau tirion, O Myfanwy / Heb wrido wrth fy ngweled i? Myfanwy, may you spend your lifetime Beneath the midday sunshine's glow, And on your cheeks O may the roses Dance for a hundred years or so. Myfanwy, the melody, was written and composed by Joseph Parry (1841 – 1903), with the lyrics written by Richard Davies (1833 – 1877) - it was first published in 1875. Myfanwy Lyrics: Paham mae dicter, O Myfanwy / Yn llenwi'th lygaid duon di?
