The Golden Wheat

"The Golden Wheat" is a delightful song that I came across in Geoffrey Brace's Something to Sing. Geoffrey Brace says that some people consider it's melody to be the most beautiful of all Welsh tunes. He attributes the English words to Will Sanhow. In such cases I cannot help thinking that the original Welsh must be even more impressive.
It's of a young man, deeply in love but unsure of his intended's intentions. He has to leave her, he swears undying love and wishes his loved-one will follow him.
