The poem I got from Andrew Smith in Brithenig

Ill gran ugell, can ys cant sew gantiwn;
Ugell lla afon, can ys erig' sew blyf in lla fryf;
Ugell lla gantiwn, can ys llodd llo h-ystuil di'll noeth
Lla gantiwn, affos llo rhewleir thud h-asculltant a lle.

The poem in Chleweyish:

poss possesive

Notes:
The posesive construction is, in infinitive:
:noun1: :noun2: i
examples:
pochen nyivo e: the bird of the river

English almost-plain translation:

The great bird, its song it sings
bird of the river, its feathers shake in the mist
bird of the song, the stars of the night praise
[and] the song all the leaders listen

or even more plain:

The greath bird sings its song
[this same] bird of the river shakes its feathers in the mist
[this same] bird of the song praises the stars of the night
[and] all the leaders listen [this] song

As Joshua complains the fourth line is like <<a sudden reference to ice
hockey in a poem about daisies>> due to a lack of a conector (I probably
rushed a little).  I have not my notes at hand, the conector should be
something like "when all that happend then" and should surely be one word=
 in
Chleweyish.

I begin to dubt if _wombi_ (big) is realy the way of saying "great".
