Although it is not May, yet, I do not have any doubt you will enjoy. :)
I made a tryst in the May brushwood, (graceful Dafydd and a handsome girl). An honest woman, she who met me. On the fair hillside under a dark bank, I gave her the kisses she was seeking, finding no fault in the pretty creature; and she got from me — bright generous jewel — two for every kiss she gave.
But in her declarations, far bolder was my girl than I, and when I heard my gentle creature speak so plain I fled at her challenge into my shell, and Startled, hid her words under my unlucky chatter.
But there under the oaks my fate was spun, and this new colour woven in :
"Rude Dafydd, you never came just to meet me, without hoping for all the embraces you remembered, and no refusal ? "
"For pleasure, not for this I came - but still for love of you, ‑ Fair foolish creature, I know I shall not have you!"
"But I never came just for your sake to the wood, but hoping to leave it freed from maidenhood!"
”A maid you’ll be though, unrevenged on me, and here you'll see nothing that's not pure as snow, nor hear any but pure and proper speech." (O Mary, even if you wish this, I do not: nor will I submit!) "You'll be spoken ill of, and not without reason, that you came to meet me here. I am wise now through having lost my wits, and I would not care to feel the hurt and fury of your father, which I felt a little while ago."
"Stop your clever excuses and let what may be, be. Out there in the meadow, or in some byre, it's safe enough!"
"This easy going brings down the black faced wrath of relatives, and though this is harmless, there is the great archdeacon. liberal when he wishes, but excommunicating whom he likes in his own district if he is not given generously forty Shillings"
"O hard and nasty you are Dafydd, here under the leaves of the hillside! Shall a good Welshman lack the grace to give these forty Shillings?"
"What if I have not these forty Shillings, so early on the bold summer's day?"
"Get it from me then, and owe me a song and pay me fairly when you wish."
Then I could make no more clever excuses, but stayed there since she did not refuse me; and with this handsome creature found perfect pleasure.
