    He immersed himself in the Mabinogi and early Welsh poetry and in Greek and Roman myths. Meirion followed these impressionists in his first book of verse, Syndod y Sêr (Gwasg y Dryw, ), rejecting artificial forms of poetry and choosing, rather, to write poems without pattern or punctuation to give unhindered voice to his thoughts and emotions.

Looking in particular at narrative and the way in which the poets tell stories, the book highlights the great stylistic differences between early Welsh and English poems, even when they are retelling the same or similar events. This allows readers an insight to the distinguishing features and trends within both.
