The three Ghosts of Ancylus Lake

The three Ghosts of Ancylus Lake

Following the account of LLyr, son of Liadain the Gray Lady, the Ancylus Lake was haunted by three giant ghosts, phantoms of three brothers that marched their army one against the other after the death of their father, the king of the region. They all died, with their men, in the cold swamp after a furious battle. Now, in death, they all sing together the same mournful song:
'Fear no more the lightning flash,
Nor th’ all-dreaded thunder-stone;
Fear not slander, censure rash;
Thou hast finished joy and moan.
All lovers young, all lovers must
Consign to thee and come to dust.'
