Inscription(s)

IVOR NOVELLO
(david ivor davies)
composer, playwrigh, actor
cyfansoddwr, dramadydd, actor
1893-1951
glamorous night
careless rapture
crest of the wave
the dancing years
king's rhapsody
perchance to dream
in this city was born
a king
who gave his people
dreams and songs to sing

ar aelwyd dinas glo
cynheuwyd cân
gynhesodd genedl
gyfan gyda'i dân

keep the home fires burning
i can give you the starlight
my dearest dear
love is my reason
we'll gather lilacs
some day my heart will awake

Signed: sculpture by / peter nicholas / arca. frbs.
