Jonathan Cohen - Legend of Llyn Llech Owain

Legend of Llyn Llech Owain (“Lake of Owen’s Stone”) is inspired by Sir Lewis Morris’s poem Llyn Owain: A Legend of the Vale of Towy and the many other stories of the lake known as Llyn Llech Owain in Wales. Here, the origin of this peaceful lake is told: a bubbling spring of elfin magic rescues the life of King Arthur’s Sir Owain, but left uncapped fills its beautiful valley.
