An example of his work remains in manuscript, this being a cywydd written in 1460 on the occasion of the return of Richard, duke of York, from Ireland, his new campaign against Henry VI, and the hasty summoning of Parliament late in the same year. Unfortunately, this same poem is attributed in various other manuscripts to Dafydd Llwyd ap Llywelyn ap Gruffudd and to Llywelyn ab Ednyfed alias Llywelyn ap Maredudd ab Ednyfed.
