Death of Hope


I was once given a picture of an Allied Irish Bank which had previously been a prison, and asked to write a poem about it.

This is the result, in the original Welsh, and in English translation.

On a Photo of a former prison, now an Allied Irish Bank


Unwaith Carchar, wedyn Banc
Unwaith caethiwed dynion, wedyn caethiwed arian
Dwywaith diwedd gobaith

Once a prison, now a bank
Once a captivity for men, now a captivity for money
Both times a death of hope
