A Year And A Day - Poem by Jez Farmer

It was agreed in a day and a year
That Pwyll should return to fight without fear.
For a year and one day, they swapped places,
Their form, spirit and looks they exchanged, they did;
No soul could tell, nor those who knew their faces.
But how would Pwyll know Havgan, Arawn’s foe,
‘The date is fixed, a year tonight, we meet’
The King explained ‘as me, you, he will know!
One swipe of sword, will bring Havgan’s defeat
And if he should ask for more, do not hear
Just one swipe you need, do not hear his bid
For if you should deliver one more blow
His power to fight returns; replaces.’
Said the King ‘When it’s done as friends we’ll meet.’
