Demelza's song - Medhal An Gwyns - LYRICS & Youtube cover - Poldark


Whilst watching the final episode of Poldark, i once again fell in love with a beautiful original folk song written for the series.
I put a cover of the song up on my Youtube channel yesterday, if you want to check it out you can watch it here:



I also wanted to provide the lyrics that i used in this video for anyone else wanting to have a go at singing it themselves,

Medhel An Gwyns:

Memories like voices that call on the wind
Medhel an gwyns, Medhel an gwyns
Whispered and tossed on the tide coming in
Medhel oh Medhel an gwyns

Voices like songs that are heard in the dawn
Medhel an gwyns, Medhel an gwyns
Singing the secrets of children unborn
Medhel oh Medhel an gwyns

Dreams like the memories once born on the wind
Medhel an gwyns, Medhel an gwyns
Lovers and children and copper and tin
Medhel oh Medhel an gwyns

Dreams like the castles that sleep in the sand
Medhel an gwyns, Medhel an gwyns
Slip through the fingers or held in the hand
Medhel oh Medhel an gwyns

Songs like the dreams that the bow maiden spins
Medhel an gwyns, Medhel an gwyns
Weaving the song of the cry of the tin Medhel oh Medhel an gwyns
Medhel oh Medhel an gwyns

I hope you enjoyed my cover of this beautiful song,
Much Love, Beth xxx
