Year of the Sea - Visual Poem


Ifor ap Glyn is the National Poet of Wales. Working in Welsh and English, Ifor won the Crown at the National Eisteddfod of Wales in 1999 and 2013. 

His Welsh language poem Blwyddyn y môr 2018 (The Year of the Sea 2018) has been commissioned in conjunction with Literature Wales to celebrate Wales’ epic shores in this special year.  

Inspired by long days spent on the sand and in the sea, Ifor’s poem invokes a magical world where the two meet, where nature can be experienced and enjoyed, where the time spent with family and friends makes memories that last a lot longer than the summer sun.
