 Ing’s “Peace Comes To You”Poem translated into Welsh By Mr. Hywel Lewis on October 9, 2017

Sent: 09 October 2017 19:38
From: Lewis, Hywel                                                      Subject: poem

Pan fyddwch chi’n mwynhau diferion glaw,

Ddaw heddwch i chi,
Pan fyddwch chi’n clywed adar yn canu,

Ddaw heddwch i chi,
Pan welwch chi bysgod’n nofio mewn dwr glân,

Ddaw heddwch i chi,
Pan fyddwch chi’n clywed plant yn chwerthin,

Ddaw heddwch i chi,
A phan fyddwch chi’n hwmian wrth gerdded yn y goedwig

Ddaw heddwch i chi,,
A phan fyddwch chi’n eistedd yn dawel yn gwylio’r haul yn codi a’i osod
Gwrando ar y tonnau’n canu,
Yna ddaw heddwch i chi,
Gadewch i heddwch ddod atoch mewn gwahanol ffyrdd
Gadewch i heddwch fod gyda ni holl.

 Ings comments:
I was very lucky when I went to Swansea, Wales in October 2017. A friend came to visit us with her three daughters and her sister with one daughter. They made us very happy from their visit and all of them read my “Peace Comes to You” poem aloud for me to record their voices. They also wrote their peace comments from my Peace Project “What does Peace mean to you?” on my large Peace Poster. The girls enjoyed drawing artwork and writing their expressions on Peace. I was doubly lucky to have Mr. Hywel Lewis, who works at the Swansea Library, being kind enough to translate my poem “Peace Comes To You” into Welsh. Mr. Lewis also read my poem both in Welsh and in English for me to record. John went to Swansea many times to visit his sister but was unable to find anyone to translate my Peace Poem. John is Welsh, I thought that it is important for me to have a Welsh translation for my Peace Poem. I already have my Peace Poem translated into 28 languages and the Welsh translation added to this number made the total 29. I was so lucky, happy and grateful to receive this help, that I felt much better even though I had bad cold for the entire time of my trip to the UK.

I was lucky to catch this beautiful pink sky over Swansea Bay on Wednesday, October 11, 2017

 

 When I look at or think of Swansea beach at the back of the Library I always see the image of Mr. Hywel Luwis smiling, reading my Peace Poem in Welsh and English.

Swansea Library on Wednesday, October 11, 2017

 

Darkness consumes the light outside, but inside the library human minds are alert and consuming  all the knowledge the library provides.

 

 

Walking alone on the beach is not a lonely feeling, hearing the sounds of waves singing, the cool gentle breeze touching the skin, and the fresh air all around, is a time that one will never feel lonely, but comfortable in the arms of nature.

 

The knowledge in the sea is translated into languages for us to understand nature, to preserve it, for future generations to enjoy a healthy environment always.

 

Far away a standing lighthouse monument of old times, remains to guard against unseen dangers.

Ing’s comments:

 A couple of birds enjoy soaring and surfing from the sky, and a human couple enjoys a leisure time walking. It is a beautiful sight to see and to feel.  But humans dump plastic waste, toxic waste and all kind of objects in the the sea killing sea animals and birds that mistake plastic as food. The birds and sea creatures eat this plastic waste and feed it to their babies, most of them will die from indigestion of plastic materials. Humans at present, have to wake up and be concerned about what they are doing. Consciously or subconsciously, they destroy the world with pollutants in the sea, and carbon dioxides from factories and the cars in the air.  This will contribute to human sickness with cancer and other diseases.  I try to encourage peace for mankind, but there is no longer peace in me when I see humans destroying the world, themselves and all living things on earth.

 Ings Peace Project Organized by Kelly, Stephanie and their four Children

Kelly, Stephanie and their four Children, Lacey, Madison, Hallie, and Cleo were reciting Ing’s Peace poem, “Peace Come To You”, Swansea, Wales

“Peace Comes To You”
When you enjoy rain drops
Peace comes to you
When you hear birds sing
Peace comes to you
When you see fish swim in clean water
Peace comes to you
When you hear children laugh
Peace comes to you
And when you hum while walking in the wood
Peace comes to you
And when you sit quietly watching the sun rise and set
Listening to the waves sing
Then Peace comes to you
Let Peace come to you in different ways
Let Peace be with us all

“Peace” poem by Ing-On Vibulbhan-Watts, written on September 24, 2010

Hi Kelly & Stephanie,
I was very glad to see both of you and the girls. The girls are so lovely and very good kids. I love their drawings and comments on “What does Peace mean to you?” I really enjoyed that day, it made me forget about my sickness. John enjoyed cooked Pizza and prepared for everything. I was too weak to help him. He said he loved to do it for the kids. Thank you for everything. We appreciate all your help and your parents also.
Thanks again, please give my love to everyone.
All the best,
Ing

John and I had bad colds all three weeks in Swansea, Wales. At the end of our trip, two days before we left Swansea, two of our former neighbors who become our good friends, came to visit us with their children, four girls. We were so glad to see them. The children sang Welsh songs for our grandson, Kai for me to record on my camcorder. All of them recited my Peace poem, “Peace Come To You”. They also joined in to write their comments on “What does Peace mean to you?”.

Their comments are as the following:

Peace means Love all around the world
Peace means care and kindness
Peace means happiness, relaxation and peace starts with Love
Peace is Life
Peace means getting down on a special chair, quietly watching over your garden
Peace means silence and kindness
Peace is joy, Sweetness and Love
Love. Love. Love. Love.
Peace means caring and kind
Peace starts with kind heart and Love!
Peace is Hope
Peace is us
Peace means Family
Be in Peace not in pieces
Peace begins with a smile
“Aren’t we all Humans then why can we all live in PEACE!!”
Peace is our gift to others
Peace is Beacks!
Peace means caring and Kind
Peace means Love
“Forgive others, not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace”
Peace means that all is clam and Its also means to me is friendship and Loyalty.
Peace begins with a smile.
Peace is family
Peace means that everything is calm and relaxing

Before Kelly, Stephanie and four of their children came to our gathering John was very busy preparing pizza for everyone, especially for the children.  Because he knows that they love pizza.

 

John is a good cook and he presents his food nicely just like they are his artwork.

 

I love pepperoni and mushroom.  He used a mixture of cheeses for his home made pizza.

I was sick with a bad cold and could not help him.  But I thought John was enjoying making the food for the children and good friends.

 

Now Everybody was arriving and John’s hot pizza just came out of the oven ready to eat.

 

We all enjoyed John’s pizza.  The children said they loved it.

 

 

Ending with a slice of cake.  Our fully bellies said thanks to John for a wonderful meal.

I showed everyone the photos of Kai, our two years old grandson, and his parents, Mali and Jim.

 

I showed my Peace Poem and Peace Project from my website.

 

Lacey and Cleo were reading my Peace Poem.

 

Hallie was reading my Peace Poem.

 

Madison turned to read the Peace poem.

 

Madison was helping Cleo to recite my peace poem.

 

Kelly was generous enough to recite my Peace Poem.

Lacey and Cleo enjoyed singing Welsh songs for Kai to listen and watch from my camcorder.

Cleo and her mother, Stephanie, recite my Peace Poem.

 

Hallie was enjoying acting and reciting the poem.

 

Now everyone joined in reading my Peace Poem all together.

 

Time to relax, the children enjoyed acting out for the camera.

They love the little gifts from us, hand made bronze chokers from Thailand.

 

 

Time to say good bye!!!!!  We will meet again soon :) :) :)

 Thank you very much!!  We had a good time and will forever remember our time together.
