I’m Osian Rhys Jones and I’m a Welsh language poet from Cardiff. I was awarded the Chair, the highest honour for a Welsh bard, at the 2017 National Eisteddfod at Ynys Môn. I am also a member of Y Glêr, two-time winners (so far!) of BBC Radio Cymru’s long-running production Y Talwrn. I regularly perform work around Wales.
In line with a long Welsh tradition, I write commission poems for special occasions such as wedding and birthdays. I also take on creative commissions. Get in touch if you’d like to commission me.
Below is a sample of Welsh language poems. Where possible I’ve tried to describe them in English.

Here’s a list of things I have done as a poet.
