RemovedEdit

Removed this: "one of the three classes of traditional Welsh poetic metre (the other two being awdl and englyn)" and the bit about masculine and feminine rhymes. This was all added along with a reference to: Lloyd, D. Myrddin, and T.V.F. Brogan. "Cywydd." The New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics. Edited by Alex Preminger and T.V.F. Brogan. Princeton: Princeton UP, 1993. 265.

I thought it looked odd, so, as it turns out this book is in the library, I went and looked it up. It doesn't say the things above or anything like them. It says, in part, "It is composed in rhyming couplets (aa bb cc etc), each line having 7 syllables [...] with the stress penultimate in the one and final in the other." I didn't have time to note the rest. I'm also doubtful that the final/secondlast stress pattern is feminine rhyme.

Anyway, I have replaced it.
