Abstract Cywyddau gofyn (request poems) form a significant genre in medieval and early modern Welsh literature and a few of these poems contain some apicultural material. Hitherto quite unknown to beekeepers and of considerable historical interest, three of these early Welsh poems are discussed here and drawn to the attention of a wider readership unable to read the originals.
