Laugharne Castle

What awesome stories could be told

Of knights in armour, riding bold

Defending maids in days of old

And marching on to glory

In battles fought and battles won

As armour shone in summer sun

The knightly steed would yield to none

Despite the great furore

But now the castle’s falling down

No kingly head to wear the crown

All memory is just a frown

As children learn the story


Students of literature may recognise Laugharne Castle. On the other side of the castle is Dylan Thomas’ boathouse where he wrote much of his work, including, I believe, his play, Under Milk Wood.
