Taliesin

I first read this words in JOHN AND CAITLIN MATHEWS, book The WesternWay a practical guide to the western mystery tradition, which is a superb book and I love this complete version….

Primary Chief Bard am I to Elffin,

And my original country was the region of the summer stars;

Idno and Henin called me Myrddin,

At length every king will call me Taliesin.

I was with my Lord in the highest sphere,

On the fall of Lucifer into the depths of hell;

I have borne a banner before Alexander;

I know the names of the stars from north to south;

I have been on the galaxy at the throne of the Distributor;

I was in Canaan when Absalom was slain;

I conveyed the divine Spirit to the level of the Vale of Hebron;

I was in the Court of Don before the birth of Gwydion;

I was instructor to Eli and Enoch;

I have been winged by the genius of the splendid crozier;

I have been loquacious prior to being gifted with speech;

I was at the place of the crucifixion of the merciful Son of God;

I have been three periods in the prison of Arianrhod;

I have been chief director of the work of the tower of Nimrod;

I am a wonder whose origins are not known;

I have been in Asia with Noah in the Ark,

I have seen the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah;

I have been in India when Rome was built,

I am now come here to the remnant of Troy;

I have been with my Lord in the manger of the ass;

I strengthened Moses through the waters of the Jordan;

I have been in the firmament with Mary Magdalene;

I have obtained the Awen from the cauldron of Ceridwen;

I have been Bard of the Harp to Lleon of Lochlin;

I have been on the White Hill, in the court of Cynfelyn,

For a year and a day in stocks and fetters,

I have suffered hunger for the Son of the Virgin,

I have been fostered in the land of the Deity,

I have been teacher to all intelligences,

I am able to instruct the whole universe;

I shall be until the day of doom upon the face of the Earth,

And it is not known whether my body be flesh or fish.

Then I was for nine months

In the womb of the hag Ceridwen;

I was originally little Gwion,

At length I am Taliesin.”
