Prince Charles has recorded one of his favourite Dylan Thomas poems for a special broadcast to mark National Poetry Day.
The prince chose Fern Hill, the Welsh poet's reminiscences of childhood visits to an aunt's farm in Carmarthenshire.
Prince Charles described the poem as "poignant and moving".
He is Royal patron of the Dylan Thomas 100 Festival, which will mark the centenary of the poet's birth in 2014.
"For National Poetry Day, I was very glad, if somewhat hesitant - to be able to record a reading of one of my personal favourites, Fern Hill, with its poignant and moving evocation of a rural west Wales childhood," said Prince Charles.
"I cannot help feeling this is one of the great legacies of Thomas's poetry - that it inspires people to appreciate the incomparable landscape of Wales."
