Title: The Owl


The hooting of an owl about a house was considered a sign of ill luck, if not of death.  This superstition has found a place in rhyme: | Os y ddylluan ddaw i’r fro, Lle byddo rhywun afiach, Dod yno i ddweud y mae’n ddinâd, Na chaiff adferiad mwyach.| If an owl comes to those parts,Where someone sick is lying, She comes to say without a doubt, That that sick one is dying.
